IT is a vista which offers views of the iconic Glencoe landscape, its immutable mountains appearing timeless against the sky.

And now it is home to one of Scotland's most rural electric charging points for electric cars as new  green infrastructure rolls out across the country.

Accompanied by its own skeletal ski instructor mascot, the point has been picked in a selection of the top ten picturesque electric vehicle charging stations in the UK, from rolling hills to the British seaside.

The 10 photographs bring to life the rural or unique spots where drivers can stop off to top up their car batteries.

Alongside the Highland spot, an urban charging bank in Glasgow's Blythswood Square was also selected to illustrate the growing number of places electric vehicle owners can recharge their car batteries.

One at Penrith in the Lake District - the inspiration for the beloved children's books by Beatrix Potter - allows drivers to charge their car while enjoying striking views of Ullswater Lake.

The Government and industry campaign, Go Ultra Low, commissioned a series of photographs of chargepoints across the UK to promote the uptake of electric vehicles and showcase the country's extensive charging network.

Poppy Welch, head of Go Ultra Low, said: "From a charging perspective, there has never been a better time to be an EV owner in the UK.

"Government and private investment in the network in recent years has seen an impressive rise in chargepoint numbers, with a mix of types and providers across the length and breadth of the UK.

"Many motorists think chargepoints are just found in urban areas like car parks in towns and cities, however, this simply isn't the case, so we thought the best way to demonstrate this is to show people.

"These images showcase the significant expansion in charging infrastructure highlighting the hidden gems that exist in the UK's charging network."

Other picturesque locations include a chargepoint nestled in the Blackdown Hills, near Yarcombe, overlooking the British countryside.

Bude, in Cornwall, is also home to a seaview spot to plug in.

However, it's not just in the depths of countryside which provide the perfect spot to park up and charge up.

Charging points are also appearing across London after the Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) has come into force, deterring less economical cars from the heart of the city.

There are now close to 24,000 chargepoint connectors at more than 8,000 locations across the UK.

The network also includes more than 1,700 rapid chargers, making the UK's rapid chargepoint network one of the largest in Europe.

Investment from Highways England means that by 2020, drivers on motorways and major A roads will never be more than 20 miles from a rapid charger.

John Whitehead, owner of Bryn Elltyd Eco Guesthouse in Wales said: "As very early adopters of electric charge points in 2012, we've enjoyed seeing a steady growth in EV drivers using the connectors at Bryn Elltyd Eco Guesthouse.

"Our 3 connectors only use electricity from green renewable sources and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Moelwyn mountains and a hydro lake, helping electric motorists to enjoy travelling in the Welsh countryside."
