Beyond Glasgow lies a country of spectacular scenery, rousing traditions and high-octane activities.
Only 40 minutes’ drive from the city is beautiful Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park featuring 720 square miles of stunning terrain for walking, cycling and boating, or simply to kick back and relax.
Scotland has more than 6,000 miles of rugged coastline with the East Neuk of Fife, Sutherland and the islands of Arran, Mull, Lewis and Harris among thousands of picture postcard spots.
As you would expect from the home of golf, golf courses abound in Scotland. Playing the championship courses of Carnoustie, Gleneagles, Muirfield, St Andrews, Troon and Turnberry requires careful planning, but there are hundreds of municipal and club courses that also welcome visitors.
Scotland is a country steeped in history and you can go in search of Scottish legends at the like of the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayrshire, The Battle of Bannockburn Experience in Stirling and Loch Ness. Or attend frequent events designed to celebrate our unique heritage and culture.
Scottish hospitality is legendary and much in evidence at a fantastic range of cafes, bars and restaurants serving international, British and, of course, Scottish cuisine. Not forgetting thousands of Scotch whisky blends and more than 100 single malts.
