The most bizarre Google Street view moments captured across Scotland


You may spot the Google Street View camera driving around Scotland’s streets every now and again.

The street-level imaging services capture the country in all its glory covering thousands and thousands of ground from the Borders way up to Shetland.

The images collected by street view help to provide a navigation tool to help walk, cycle, drive throughout Scotland’s cities, towns and villages.

But it wouldn’t be Scotland if the camera didn’t pick up a few rather bizarre, funny and sometimes down right weird clips on its travels.

From bare bums to tigers, here are some of the weirdest images captured by the Google Street View camera on its travels through Scotland.
