Princes Street Edinburgh

Scotland's capital city and one of the UK's most popular destination. In parts, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known as the 'Athens of the North' during the Enlightenment.

Glasgow Science Centre

A European City of Culture, Glasgow is Scotland's largest city. Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, the Gallery of Modern Art, The Burrell Collection all here.

Suilven, Highland

Simply stunning. We refer to the smaller council area here but you could take this to mean the larger Highlands and Isands region.

Isle of Skye

Large, mountainous island connected to mainland Scotland by a bridge. We think the view from Elgol to The Cuillin is the finest in the UK. The Quiraing are exceptional, too. Part of the Highlands council area.

Leaderfoot Bridges accross the River Tweed, Scottish Borders

A fascinating area with an extraordinary wealth of historical buildings. Kelso, Jedburgh, Melrose and Dryburgh Abbeys are a must.

Orkney Islands

A collection of islands off the north east coast of mainland Scotland. Famous for its prehistoric sites such as Skara Brae and sea stacks including The Old Man of Hoy.

Cairngorms National Park

Famous for its outdoor activities from skiing to mountaineering, hiking to field sports. Covers the Cairngorm Mountains NSA and surrounding mountains and hills.

Loch Lomond and Troassachs National Park

Scotland's first National Park just north of Glasgow.

Buachaille Etive Mor

Arguably the most famous area in Scotland. Home to the UK's highest mountain in Ben Nevis and one of its most stunning glens or valleys at Glen Coe.

Torridon Mountains, Wester Ross

A National Scenic Area in north west Scotland. Exceptional mountains and coastline and, as a Geopark, home to some of the oldest rocks in the world.
