Discover Scotland

Discover Scotland

This wild land is a place of colossal mountains and deep lochs, where glens roll vastly out to meet a rugged and dramatic rugged coast. It is a place of deep-rooted traditions; tartan kilts are proudly worn, the highland games test the mettle of each clan, and the cry of bagpipes makes hearts swell.

Scotland is renowned for its sublime landscape and, whether you’re passionate about walking holidays, fishing, climbing, sailing, golf, or snow sports, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in the beauty of the Scottish outdoors.

Explore the ancient, winding streets of the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, and gather at its castle to marvel at the musical might of the Royal Military Tattoo, or take in all the architectural wonders designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and dotted about the city.
