Steeped in myths and legends, Scotland is a land of picturesque scenery, Celtic heritage and the trademark Gaelic spirit. As a nation that loves to celebrate its own uniqueness from the Highland Games, to traditional ceilidhs and the Hogmanay festivities, you’ll want to visit time and time again.
Whatever time of year you chose to come, there is always something to tempt even the most jaded traveller. Enjoying the great outdoors is a must. Go for a gentle walk across heather-strewn moors and lush glens, fish for salmon in the glistening rivers, take to the sea for a spot of kayaking or enjoy a round of golf on a championship course – St Andrews and Perthshire have some of the finest. Staying in a luxury lochside cabin, enjoying the simple pleasures of the morning mist rising over the water or the excitement of thinking you’ve just spotted Golden Eagle, is the ultimate back to nature experience.
Baronial homes and castles remind you of Scotland’s grandeur and history. Great to visit, but even better to check-into for a sophisticated house party with your nearest and dearest. Sip Pimm’s on the lawn, spend cosy nights by crackling log fires and devour lavish dinners cooked to your exact tastes. Winter is a wonderful time of year to visit and when the snow falls, the scenery becomes even more magical.
If whisky is your tipple, you’ll find Scotland to be your heaven. The Scots have the distillation process down to perfection, resulting in a seemingly endless number of blends to try. With the Atlantic on the doorstep and thriving freshwater lochs, Scotland’s seafood is extra special too and the Loch Fyne oysters are amongst the world’s finest.
Meanwhile, vibrant cities including Edinburgh and Glasgow are waiting for you to shop all day, visit the superb museums while seeing the sights, dine out at the fabulous restaurants, enjoy the excellent nightlife and attend the thriving festivals that are hosted annually.
