Scotland Cities and Regions


Clamber up cobblestone streets to dramatic Edinburgh Castle and then down narrow alleys past crooked 15th century homes. Discover Scotland’s finest museums and feast at the country’s top tables. See our Edinburgh Travel Guide.


Scotland’s largest city is big, brash and boisterous. Considered the best British weekend-break destination outside London, Glaswegians are a friendly bunch, famed for their incomprehensible accent.

Highlands and Islands

A sparsely populated region of heather, hills and rocky islands, this region is strewn with sparkling lochs (that’s lakes to the uninitiated), splashy streams, hidden beaches and quaint inns.

Fife and Grampian

Golf lovers and those with a taste for the water of life, Uisge Beatha, or whisky in Scottish Gaelic, find much to appreciate in these eastern coastal regions.


Although most only view the Borders en route to England, those who stop encounter rolling fields, lazy rivers, historic towns and ancient abbeys in Scotland’s south.

Shetland and Orkney

With their proud Nordic heritage, these remote islands have their own distinct personality, not to mention some astounding Bronze Age sites.

St. Andrews

Home of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, founded in 1754, St. Andrews is frequented by golf aficionados the world over for its numerous outstanding links.
