Scotland

Book your trip with confidence

Book your trip to Scotland by 31st March 2021 and we’ll give you the flexibility to cancel it and receive a full refund up to 14 days before you travel. That way, you have the freedom to book your trip with complete confidence.

The last true wilderness of the British Isles, Scotland’s Highlands have the sort of boreal vastness that reminds you of Canada or Alaska. Our specialists are passionate about Scotland’s landscapes and can show you the best ways to experience them, tailor-making your stay to include hikes along far-flung lochs, wildlife tracking with a photography expert or exploring under the wing of a countryside ranger.

They’ll also help you dig deeper into Scotland’s proudly distinct cultural traditions, from bagpiping to single malt whisky production, and an entangled, sometimes bloody history with England that’s still strongly felt by Scots. Aside from its mountainous terrain, Scotland boasts modern, forward-looking cities. The capital, Edinburgh, mixes history, a dramatic setting atop a volcanic plug, and a vigorous arts scene that culminates in the annual Edinburgh International Festival and the alternative Fringe.

Scotland vacations are about contrast. One day, you might be exploring historic, arty Edinburgh; the next, you might find yourself in the untamed wilderness of the Highlands, hiking and looking out over deep, inscrutable lochs (lakes). Our specialists have a thorough knowledge of this majestic, highly individual corner of northern Europe. We’re able to recommend everything from which whisky distilleries to visit, to the most scenic points on the far-flung Isle of Skye. They can also suggest what to see and do in Scotland’s characterful cities and towns, from the castles and coast of Inverness to the churches (and golf courses) of St Andrews.

Scotland’s fiercely independent spirit shines through its cultural traditions, food and mountainous Highland scenery. Our specialists have explored some of its most remote scenic corners as well as its cities, and can suggest how to make the most of your time here.

Scotland's wild, mountainous scenery, long history and whisky distilleries provide ample opportunity for activities, and our carefully chosen things to do will bring you closer to this highland country and its people. Whether you choose to take a romantic steam train to the Isles, a champagne flight over the Trossachs or an after-dark ghosts and ghouls tour around Edinburgh’s Old Town, we'll help you uncover Scotland's hidden secrets.

You can learn to fly fish with a local ghillie, improve your photography on a wildlife tracking experience, explore historic estates, cruise Loch Ness or find out how to distil your own gin. There are a wealth of ways to explore Scotland and we'll help arrange the best ones for you.
