Few places can rival Scotland for sheer drama and breathtaking beauty, with huge areas of forest, plunging waterfalls, bottomless lochs and unspoilt wildernesses home only to wildlife. The mountains and glens of the Highlands are perhaps Scotland’s most iconic scenery: severe peaks, vast rivers, heather-dusted uplands and stunning views all round. Equally spectacular is the coastline, where dizzying cliffs hold back the sea and calm bays offer secluded, isolated beaches where you can spot dolphins, whales and eagles.

Scotland’s unique archipelagos and islands boast quaint fishing villages, wild landscapes and fertile farmland. The Scots have a fierce sense of identity, reflected in the Gaelic language, the smattering of fortresses, stately homes and ancient battlefields across the land.

There are fantastic cities, from glorious Edinburgh perched romantically on an ancient volcano, with its fairytale castle and stunning architecture, to vibrant, culturally cutting-edge Glasgow. The many shops and craft markets across the country will delight shoppers seeking everything from designer goods to Harris tweed, jewellery to haggis.

Adventurous types will relish the many challenging outdoor pursuits on offer, from walking, scuba diving, surfing and fishing to having a round of golf on one of the many splendid courses. If you’re partial to a tipple the famous Scotch whisky is a must, whilst foodies will relish the delicious beef, fish and game.
