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.
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. Geographically diverse, the landscape is undulating farmland leading to lovely wooded glens and dramatic coastline.

Scotland and Beyond
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 where each corner exposes a dramatic sense of history awaiting exploration.

The breathtaking, wild, romantic, and varied landscape of low hills, broad valleys, moorland, coastline, forest, and rivers begs to be discovered, especially the Mull of Galloway, the southernmost point of Scotland. Surprising to most visitors, Southern Scotland is never far from the waterfront - from freshwater lochs to the Irish Sea, which separates the mainland from the Emerald Isle and the Isle of Man, to the Solway coastline and the wild North seacoast. Aside from the incredible scenery, many people are drawn to historic attractions such as Caerlaverock Castle, Cardoness Castle, The Lighthouse on the Mull of Galloway, MacLellan's Castle, Glen House, Jedburgh Abbey, Threave Castle, Sweetheart Abbey, and more.
