Holidays to Scotland

The colours of Scotland's natural splendour are captured in its ravishing tartan and tweed. The Highlands offer hikes, hills and winter sports. Over 700 islands grouped into stunning archipelagos – Shetland, Orkney and the Hebrides – come fringed by breath-taking white sands (including the world's only beach airport). Beautiful lesser-known spots include the abbey-dotted Borders and the fishing hamlets of East Neuk. Discover standing stones older than the Pyramids and evocative mementoes of the two World Wars.

You want wildlife? Glimpse stags roaming wild moors, osprey soaring over silvery lochs, and whale sharks gliding through pristine ocean. City fans can contrast the ancient atmospherics of Edinburgh with the creative pulse of Glasgow. And forget the deep-fried Mars bar jokes – Scotland is a gourmet paradise. The seafood is as world class as the whisky. Add superb beef and venison – plus the unique national dish, haggis. Try it – you'll love it!
