Highlights of Scotland
The Lothians
The Lothians, home to Scotland`s capital city, Edinburgh, is a remarkable region. From historic properties to striking architecture, stunning scenery, fascinating wildlife, fine food, and other fun activities, Edinburgh never lacks excitement! Outside Edinburgh, experience sweeping landscapes of ancient battlefields, country houses, and castles.
Central Scotland
Central Scotland covers the dramatic regions of Stirling and the Trossachs, Perthshire, and Fife. The mainland strip showcases the country's splendor. Central Scotland is replete with steely blue lochs reflecting soaring, fortress-like craggy peaks, and ancient woodlands, serving as the backdrop to some of the most important events in Scottish history.
The Highlands
The Scottish Highlands are the reality behind the captivating images conjured by most people when thinking of Scotland. It is a beautiful and inspiring region, full of timeless landscapes and absorbing history. The dreamy, unspoiled scenery gives rise to the region's reputation as the romantic heart of the nation.
The Scottish Isles
There are over 900 islands in Scotland, and 89 of those islands are populated. The islands include the Hebrides in the west, the islands in the Firth of Clyde in the southeast, and the Northern Isles. You can visit most by air or ferry, and Skye by car! They are sure to be the highlight of your Scottish vacation.
Southern Scotland
Southern Scotland encompasses the areas of Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Borders, and Ayrshire and Arran; its rich and intriguing past is never more apparent than in the wealth of small towns, postcard perfect villages, and sleepy hamlets, all with varying landscapes where each corner exposes a dramatic sense of history awaiting exploration.
Cities in Scotland
Scotland and Beyond
NORTHEAST SCOTLAND

Northeast Scotland is home to the 'Granite City,' Aberdeen and Grampian, as well as Angus and Dundee; a region with multifaceted appeal, home to more castles than anywhere in the UK, with a big, glitzy city strewn about by quaint fishing villages. A plethora of attractions includes distilleries, castles, plus sandy beaches and the majestic Grampian Mountains. Geographically diverse, the landscape is largely undulating farmland, but there are lovely wooded glens, dramatic coastline, and rocky cliffs!

The capital of the region is Aberdeen, home of admired Romantic poet Lord Byron & Scotland's third largest city; The Grampian Mountains dominate the western border, where visitors find Deeside, largely unknown, save for Balmoral Estate, made famous by the Royal family. To the south are expansive, abandoned sandy beaches leading to the Ythan Estuary, where picturesque fishing villages are tucked into the coves. Dramatic, rocky cliffs help frame the east and shelter the borders of the Cairngorms National Park. Heading north leads to Scotland's most prolific whisky producing area, Speyside. Located to the south of Aberdeen, Angus and Dundee offer the ultimate region in which to wind down and savor a break! Angus is predominantly a farming center, and features, accordingly, some of the greatest scenery in the northeast! Its coast is home to scarlet cliffs and sweeping bays. The extravagant Glamis Castle calls the northern heather-covered hills home, and is well worth the visit. In the south is Dundee, known as the 'City of Discovery,' which is enjoying its emerging reputation as a revitalized cultural center, shedding its depressing, post-industrial image with a vibrant educational scene. The surroundings area enjoys numerous historical sites and fun activities, from handsome Broughty Castle and Museum, to historic buildings in Forfar, to golf in Carnoustie, and the natural beauty awaiting discovery in Glen Isla.
