The sheer range of superlative landscapes is reason enough to choose a holiday in Scotland - but there's so much more to discover.
Towering mountains and deep reflective lochs, deserted sandy beaches and vibrant city hotspots, tiny ferry ports and breath-taking train journeys, icy rivers, glens, fragrant forests and shimmering islands. When you add in cultural heritage, from pre-historic sites and atmospheric castles to cutting edge architecture and iconic film locations, incredibly diverse wildlife, and a justly famous reputation for fine food and whisky, you’ll be wondering where to start. It’s a magical, romantic place to visit and we’ve been exploring for years. Let us show you how to make the most of your holiday, to see beyond the surface and start a passionate affair with the Scotland we know and love.
Why not island hop throughout the multitude of beautiful and diverse Scottish islands? If your preferred place is behind the wheel, take a road trip in a classic car through remote Scottish glens on deserted roads. You could also take a shellfish safari, and join a local fisherman on his working boat as he gathers his creels, then enjoy a seafood lunch back on dry land. Rail enthusiast or not, the experience of reliving the age of steam with a first class trip on the Jacobite Express is not to be missed. Cast aside the cares and hassles of mainstream air travel with a flight on a small plane to a tiny, welcoming rural airport. While some have tarmac runways, others are mere fields and on Barra you even land on the sand of a cockle beach – the only place in the world where the scheduled flight timetable depends on tides.
