Destination Scotland

Heather-infused moorlands, majestic castles, towering mountains, shimmering lochs, rugged coastlines, glens, beaches, forests and historic cities are all part of Scotland’s rich and varied landscape.

But let’s not forget its world-renowned whisky, highland cows (coos), tartan, ‘tatties and neeps’, haggis, bagpipes and of course the famous Loch Ness Monster.

Exploring each region of Scotland, whether it’s the Scottish Highlands, the Islands, the Uplands or the Lowlands, Scotland has something to offer everyone.

Whether your Scotland travel involves a road trip or you’re simply looking for inspiration and information on places to visit in Scotland then …

Take the coo by the horns and plan your visit to Bonnie Scotland here.

Explore some of Scotland’s many quaint fishing villages, such as Stonehaven. And with more than 1000 castles, it would be rude not to visit at least one of them. If you are near Aberdeen, Drum Castle gives you an interesting insight into the life of its past residents. Or, if you prefer moody castle ruins, you can’t beat a visit to Dunnottar Castle towering high on a craggy rock by the ocean.

Scotland’s wildlife can’t be missed either. If you love getting close to some of nature’s precious animals, you’ll enjoy reading about the grey seal colony at Newburgh Beach, the only mainland gannet colony in Scotland, and the red kites near Inverness.
