Visit Scotland have jumped on the ‘onesie’ craze, but with a difference – they have chosen Shetland ponies, Fivla and Vitamin to model their specially made onesies made from Shetland wool.

These pretty little models are representing The Year of Natural Scotland, which aims to educate people on the country’s range of biodiversity and to inspire holidaymakers with its beautiful landscapes.

Visit Scotland said: “With Shetland wool and knitwear being so in demand, it seemed like a fun way to celebrate Shetland’s natural landscapes, products and heritage.”

Next month would be an ideal time to visit and combine outdoor walks in the countryside with a trip into the city of Glasgow for its Film Festival 14th-24th February. It includes themed screenings and many tie-in events across the city, to provide plenty to do over a day out or weekend away.

Why not try one of these lovely lodges right on the loch side of Loch Lomond and with a private sandy beach, and only a 50 minute drive to Glasgow. The lodges are perfect family holiday accommodation, with verandah’s complete with lockable gates, perfect if you are visiting with small children or animals.

The lodges sleep six each and are double glazed with a fully fitted kitchen, pay-phone, flat screen TV with freeview, DVD player and hi-fi with iPod functionality.
