Book direct flights to Glasgow to discover the city’s transformation, from its industrial past to its trendsetting locales. Explore the country’s windswept coastline along the NC500 trail, visiting castles dating back to the 16th century and dine in countryside pubs that come alive every weekend for the local ceilidh. Hop on a ferry onwards to the truly breathtaking Hebrides Islands or even closer still, the Isle of Skye. Head to the Highlands say hello to Nessie, Loch Ness’s most famous resident, and may be even plan a hike at Ben Nevis if that’s your thing. Oh, and why not throw in a whisky distillery while you’re there?

Whatever you decide, Scotland will not disappoint. But maybe bring a raincoat, just in a case.
