A country which still very much embraces its true heritage. Visit Scotland and immerse yourself in the abundance of tartan, haggis and bagpipes! Start in Edinburgh, which although very much has tradition at heart, has its own modern atmosphere. Explore the numerous boutique cafes, homemade tartan shops, and of course, during your visit you must climb Arthur's seat for the best views of Edinburgh. Glasgow offers a very different experience, with its grungy buildings and modern atmosphere.
What everyone does in Scotland
With several flights departing from London every day, a trip to Edinburgh couldn’t be easier. Visit Edinburgh Castle, taste the local food Haggis and explore the smaller streets lined with boutique shops and cafes. Get used to the constant sound of Bagpipes in the background and don’t forget to pick up a tartan scarf during your visit.
What some people do in Scotland
With only a 55-minute train journey between Glasgow and Edinburgh, you would be silly not to visit both whilst in Scotland. Besides, these two cities might as well be in different countries they are so different. With Edinburgh's beautiful architecture and traditional atmosphere, compared to Glasgow's arty modern vibe, it’s a great experience to compare the two.
What no one else does in Scotland
Open to the elements but blessed with peace and rawness. The Scottish highlands are the perfect place to visit if you want gorgeous scenery and ultimate tranquillity. With lots of great walking areas, the Scottish Highlands are perfect for the outdoors and adventurous type.
