Top 5 travel tips in Scotland

1. The Highlands, where many scenes of the Harry Potter series and Braveheart were filmed, are arguably the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom, let alone Scotland. Fascinating history, several landmarks and a unique landscape which only exists here awaits. Explore the famous lakes, glorious mountain ravines, picturesque beaches and reminisce by age olds monuments on historic battlefields. The region is also known for its huge array of outdoor activities, such as hiking and climbing Britain’s tallest mountains.

2. In the south of Scotland, the renowned soft hilly landscapes of the Lowlands are found – take a detour to Hadrian’s Wall and experience the peaceful rolling hills and majestic castles of the lowlands on your journey down south. Furthermore, a trip to the Isle of Arran is recommended, which is also known as, “Scotland in Miniature.”

3. The capital city of Edinburgh combines decades of history with a lively and open minded atmosphere. Experience the impressive scenery, stunning architecture and picturesque coast –

Edinburgh truly deserves its UNESCO World Heritage Site label and is known as the festival city with its Edinburgh Fringe festival which takes place in late August.

4. Scotland’s biggest city, Glasgow doesn’t lag far behind. Glasgow has always been well known for its pragmatic adaptability and the contrast to its more conservative neighbour in Edinburgh. Glasgow’s communicative character, the distinctive humour, the helpfulness as well as the creativity of its Glaswegians also contribute to this – despite its redevelopment to a modern cosmopolitan metropolis, the city hasn’t lost its robust charm: Victorian, classical and Art nouveau Façade elements don’t feel out of place with modern structures. Glasgow is a hotbed for its art and music, with its Buchanan Street being known as the second best shopping mile in the UK.
