Scotland is a beautiful country, rich in history, culture and picturesque countryside.
With over 11,000km of coastline, mountains, rolling fields, lochs and rivers, Scotland has an abundance of wildlife and nature just waiting to be discovered. It’s the perfect country to visit if you are a keen walker. The Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park are well worth visiting, not only for the hikes but for the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
Aside from the dramatic landscape, Scotland is home to seven cultural cities, those being; Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee, Inverness and Stirling. These bustling cities boast iconic attractions, contemporary bars and restaurants. The city of Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital and is full of beautiful architecture, historic monuments and attractions. Visitors can explore the Medieval Old Town and the elegant Georgian New Town which sit side by side in the city.
Alternatively, if you are looking to escape to the coast, Scotland has miles of sandy beaches to explore. Some of the better known beaches in Scotland, such as Sango Bay, West Sands Beach, Clachtoll Beach and Tombolo Beach are popular amongst holiday goers and families. Others, however, are situated in remote corners of the country, many of which are situated within protected nature reserves and generally off the beaten track. Sandwood Bay requires a four-mile walk from the car park in the hamlet of Blairmore. It is considered to be one of the cleanest and most unspoilt beaches in Scotland.
