One of the highlights of Scotland holidays has to be embarking on a break to the lively capital of Edinburgh. A trip here will take you to a city full of history, art and culture; visitors can explore Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town, which sits alongside the New Town and a number of cultural sites, from the Scottish National Gallery to St Giles’ Cathedral.
You can journey to Edinburgh Castle, a world-famous icon of Scotland which is home to a rich heritage and complex history. Even better, climb to the top of Calton Hill in central Edinburgh, where you’ll be met with the National Monument of Scotland and stunning views of the streets below you. Edinburgh also has fantastic shopping options and delicious dining experiences; not forgetting a number of traditional pubs and whisky bars. Or, for true aficionados of the beverage, there’s even a scotch whisky experience for you to try.
If you’re looking for a change from city life, why not venture north and discover the Scottish Highlands? Here, you can truly get away from it all with nothing but mountains, lochs and gorgeous national park scenery to keep you company. The beautiful natural surroundings offer the perfect place to relax, while also providing plenty of opportunity for activities that will keep the whole family entertained.
Visitors can explore the trails and tracks around Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest peak, located close to the scenic town of Fort William. Meanwhile, children will love learning about the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, before venturing into the amazing untouched landscape to try and catch a sighting. Alternatively, you could step into the shoes of a famous wizard and take a steam train across the Glenfinnan Viaduct, just as Harry Potter did in the popular films.
