Explore Historic Castles, Heathered Hillsides and Breathtaking Countryside
A land where natural beauty simply dazzles, bagpipes seem to echo across the glens, and history can be felt at every turn, Scotland stirs with everlasting charm.
At Stirling Castle, admire a timeless historical icon, where famed Scottish knight William Wallace defeated invaders from England. Indulge in a tasting at a Scotch whisky distillery set in a wild and remote glen, sampling single-malt drams of Scotland’s finest. Or enjoy stunning views of Ben Nevis — the highest mountain in the British Isles — from Neptune’s Staircase, and search for the mythical Loch Ness Monster, whose first recorded sighting dates back to AD 565.
Everywhere the eye can see, rich greenery blooms: Walk the legendary Old Course in the lovely coastal town of St. Andrews, recognized as the birthplace of golf; travel to the Scottish Highlands, rich with forests, rivers and lochs; or stroll the streets of Glasgow, noted for its beautiful parks and urban landscapes, as well as some of Britain’s best art collections. August brings the opportunity to witness two spectacular festivals: the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, celebrated for its international performers and electrifying martial music; and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest performing arts festival in the world.
