Best Time to Travel:
The best time to travel to Scotland would be the summer, June to August, as the weather is a little dryer. But spring and autumn are good times to visit; there are tons of festivals and holidays around this time.
Scotland is a land full of rich history and culture with lots to see and do.
Edinburgh is ancient, founded nearly 2,000 years ago. This has allowed it to become a popular site for festivals, theaters, and a thriving music scene. Have a festival in mind that you would like to go to? Let us know! There are also loads of museums, like the National Museum of Scotland, which holds ancient artifacts, as well as more modern pieces. Edinburg is the first UNESCO City of Literature, and rightfully so. Many authors were either born here or worked here.
Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, is home to many interesting sites. One of the most famous is the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. With over 9,000 objects in this collection, there is something for everyone to see. Not only is the exterior of this building breathtaking, but the interior almost rivals it. The best part about this museum? It’s totally free! The whole city has this beauty to it. The parks, especially in the fall, are hard to beat with the changing colors and crisp city air.
Any soccer fan will need to visit Aberdeen. With huge stadiums and plenty of teams to see, it would be hard not to see a match here. Aberdeen is also fun for those who aren’t into the sport. Famous for it’s gothic architecture, this city is a feast for the eyes. You can also take ferries out to Orkney and Shetland from here. Both are great places to visit for a weekend getaway.
The Scottish Highlands are vast, but contain some of the most beautiful natural lakes and valleys. Explore Smoo Cave near Sutherland, or many other caves along the coast. Loch Ness is also located here. Maybe you’ll be the one to find the elusive Loch Ness Monster.

England and Ireland are very close to Scotland, so why not spend the weekend in Dublin or Bath?
Feeling a little more adventurous? Hike around the Isle of Skye and see the untouched wilderness. Take a trek out to the famous Fairy Pools and see the magic of nature in the waters. Islay is also very beautiful to go to and experience real Scottish life. Fuaigh Mòr, an abandoned island, is perfect for those who like to wander. Used now for grazing sheep, the remains of homes and towns are the islands only inhabitants.
