Proud host of the TOTAL BWF Badminton World Championships 2017


Last year Scotland came third in Lonely Planet’s top 10 countries and the phrase “there is something for everyone” certainly applies.

Scotland is a small country which offers an incredible amount of diversity across its landscapes, cities, activities, events and food and drink – there is so much to try, see and do.

It’s a country which is steeped in culture and heritage, past and present. From its historical figures, Nobel Prize winners, actors and literary geniuses (think J K Rowling and Conan Doyle), this is a place which has inspired and continues to do so for locals and visitors alike as well as providing the perfect backdrop for many films.

Loch Lomond

Scotland’s scenery is world-renowned and is home to wild rugged landscape, rolling hills, glens, lochs and idyllic islands. The landscape lends itself perfectly to a range of outdoor activities from hill-walking in Cairngorms National Park to mountain biking in Galloway Forest Park and adrenalin filled pursuits in Aberfeldy; not least forgetting that Scotland is the Home of Golf.

From historic castles to whisky tours, experience your favourite side of Scotland. There are plenty of fabulous city breaks in one of Scotland’s cities for you to also enjoy. Choose from a fantastic array of museums, galleries and attractions, and indulge in excellent shopping and fine dining. There are so many foodie options to choose from; Michelin-star restaurants, traditional and gastro pubs, cuisines from all over the world..

There are many brilliant moments waiting for you – plan your trip now or download the VisitScotland Explore App.
