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.

Living in Scotland for over a year, we have plenty of time to absorb the culture and visit all the spectacularly scenic places in one of the most beautiful places in the world. We’ve mixed it up with both popular and lesser-known places.

We were lucky and had lots of time to explore Scotland, but if you are on a tight schedule, you may like to browse some of Scotland’s most popular and worthwhile day trips and guided tours to include on your travels through Scotland.

Discover Edinburgh

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital, is the most popular tourist destination city for visitors to Scotland. It has so many historic locations, UNESCO World Heritage sites, and rich history. It is one of the world’s most well-known festival cities, with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Its World Heritage Site covers over 1.76 square miles, and over 75% of all of Edinburgh’s buildings are listed – the highest concentration of listed buildings anywhere in the UK.

So, wherever you find yourself in Edinburgh, you’ll be brushing shoulders with its past.
