For a country so small and with so much open countryside, Scotland has had a huge impact on world culture. Its great cities - Edinburgh (with its ever-popular cultural festival and Military Tattoo), Glasgow and Dundee - were powerhouses of the British Imperial commerce.

These cities were also at the forefront of scientific discovery and exploration, culture and learning, and remain some of the most popular holiday destinations. Its natural wonders, too, attract visitors from around the globe. Just their names - Glen Coe, Ben Nevis, The Old Man of Storr, the Cairngorms National Park, the Mull of Kintyre, Loch Ness - call up visions of unspoilt scenery, timeless beauty and unresolved mystery. 

Be it escorted tours, cruises, or family cabin holidays, Scotland has plenty to offer. Explore the Scottish Highlands, enjoy a scenic train journey or head to the Trossachs, an outstandingly beautiful area of mountains, lochs, rivers, castles and woodlands. Scotland's natural and historic treasures aren't confined to the mainland, though. Around 800 islands lie scattered off its coast, islands like Skye, Mull, Arran, or beyond them the Outer Hebridean isles offer their own beguiling mix of magnificent scenery, myths and legends. Whether you're planning a romantic break or setting off on a solo trip, discover historic tales of valour, romance and rebellion on our Scotland tours.
