Wild, rugged and romantic are the three words that spring to mind when we cast our thoughts to Scotland. With many a myth and legend sung from these undulating lands, there is a uniquely strident beauty to this area that changes dramatically from season to season.
During the winter months, the snow-covered Cairngorms National Park beckons winter enthusiasts to take advantage of uncrowded ski areas. Short daylight hours are more than made up for by sublime winter sunsets, which cast their warm hues over the breath-taking horizons and announce that it’s time to retreat back inside. With the promise of a fireside 'dram' awaiting you at the end of the day in your very own Gothic castle, it's all a bit like something out of a Sir Walter Scott novel...
Come the emergence of spring, Scotland’s lochs - such as Loch Ness, Loch Lomond and Loch Laggan - lose their 'winter skin' and wildflowers return to the foothills of the mountains in an explosion of colour. With seemingly endless days, summer is the perfect time to explore. Skirted with miles of pristine coastline and studded with country estates, Scotland hosts a plethora of landmarks, including six UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Alongside its stunning natural scenery, Scotland’s cities are not to be missed. The capital, Edinburgh, with its bustling medieval Old Town, is one of Europe's most vibrant and cultural cities. With the iconic Edinburgh Castle overlooking her historic city, Edinburgh hosts The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Edinburgh Festival Fringe in summer, along with the ever-popular Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve) and Burns Night in January. With some of the world’s leading chefs choosing Edinburgh as their home, there is a culinary Enlightenment taking place in Scotland, but we're thrilled to see the classics still remain... a trip to Scotland would not be complete without a dish of haggis, neeps & tatties, all washed down with whisky!
