PLACES TO VISIT WHEN YOU GET HERE
Some of the best places to visit for holidays and day trips:
Your best Scotland trip will depend on what it is you’re looking for. There are seven cities in Scotland. Every single one of them has their place in history, and they have their own unique flavour of Scottish culture. If you’re looking for a lot of attractions, great restaurants and a lively nightlife, one of our cities would be your ideal choice.Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Dundee and Perth. I’ve been to all of them, and I’ve covered them on this site.
If that’s not your thing, there are many beautiful, quieter places with fabulous scenery, ideal for outdoor activities and wildlife spotting.

Take advantage of our fabulous terrain for outdoor activities:
Hiking, cycling, hill climbing, kayaking, fishing, horse riding, skiing, and of course, golf. You’ll find them all here in abundance, as well as the beautiful scenery and great opportunities for wildlife spotting.
Fabulous cycle tracks and walking trails are plentiful in Scotland, with many overseas visitors making their way here purely for the outdoor activities. Some come for the golf and fishing, many come to take part in our Walking Festivals and Cycling Events. The most popular attraction for keen walkers is the West Highland Way, a distance of 95 miles (152 Km) from Milngavie to Fort William.

DISCOVER MORE ABOUT SCOTLAND
Scottish culture is much more than haggis, kilts and bagpipes:
You may want to learn more about Our Scottish Culture if you’re planning a trip to Scotland. I’ll bet the first things you think of are haggis, kilts and bagpipes. Totally understandable, because a big attraction for our visitors is the Highland Games, an iconic part of Scottish culture. If that’s your thing, check the Highland Games calendar for this year, so you can arrange your trip accordingly.
But there’s more to Scottish culture. It could be worth getting to grips with some of our Old Scottish Sayings so you’ll know what we are talking about. Mind you, our Scottish Humour is sure to put a smile on your face. And you’re guaranteed a warm welcome.
