The Beauty of Scotland

Scotland is incredibly scenic with hidden glens, heather-filled hills, and majestic crags at every turn. No matter a visitor's preference, whether it be the coastline, stunning lochs, or the historic castles, there is always something to explore.

Discover Scotland's Castles

There are more castles in Scotland than might be thought, and some are mere ruins, with others being more preserved. It is worth seeking out those monuments that are often overlooked by tourists, such as Dunnottar Castle in Aberdeenshire. This medieval fortress is set on a rocky headland and was said to be the inspiration for the animated movie Brave. Other options worth seeing include the world-famous Edinburgh Castle, Balmoral Castle and Tantallon Castle.

The Scottish Lochs

Those who enjoy water-based activities will not be disappointed with the abundance of lochs and rivers in Scotland. Loch Broom is set in a stunning location, with a backdrop of the Assynt Mountains. Nature lovers will be on the lookout for seals, and snorkeling is possible for those who don't mind ice-cold water! Loch Lomond is particularly popular and a favourite destination for those who enjoy outdoor adventures.

The list of places to visit in Scotland is endless, but must-see attractions include Rannoch Moor, Edinburgh, Orkney, the Isle of Mull, and beautiful Glen Coe. A friendly welcome from the local residents and delicious Scottish dishes add to the experience, and a whisky tasting should undoubtedly be on the itinerary!
