Run away to wild Scotland, a country of mighty crags, ancient cities and fierce tradition. From the rolling borderlands at the foot of the Cheviot hills, Scotland rises past lochs, firths and fells into the imposing Highlands. More remote still, its famed islands invite you to escape the bustle of modern life, even if just for a while.
Through skirmishes with the Vikings and centuries of war with England, Scotland has developed a strong national identity that’s easy to see in its historic cities. Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Scotland’s capital, having survived 26 sieges in the course of its 1,100-year history.
Conquer The Wild
The lochs, hills and Highlands of Scotland are paradise for the outdoors enthusiast. Thousands of trails exist to coax you into the mountains with your camping gear. If that sounds more exhausting than relaxing, cottages and log cabins in Scotland are a great way to appreciate nature without needing a bath afterwards.
Scotland has more to offer the gastronome than the deep-fried Mars bar (but naturally you’ll want to try that too). Whisky connoisseurs will feel at home wherever they travel—there are world-famous distilleries in the Highlands, islands and lowlands alike. The single island of Islay has no fewer than eight.
