A new Step into Scotland augmented reality (AR) app has been launched as part of the Scotland Is Now global campaign.

Created in close collaboration with Google, it will enable users to embark on a virtual journey and immerse themselves in Scotland’s landscapes and iconic attractions.

They will be able to learn more from locals about what makes the destination so unique and can explore its culturally significant sites with 360° videos and stills.

Using the inspirational app will have users paramotor Ben Nevis, admire the twists and turns of the North Coast 500 from a motorbike, marvel at the grandeur of Edinburgh Castle and discover the heritage of the county's whisky distilleries.

The app is available to download on the Google Play Store and the Apple iOS platform.
