Scotland is a great place for touring, with many visitor attractions and places of interest; you can pretty much stay anywhere in Scotland and be accessible to many tour destinations. There are lots of choices for tours of Scotland from Great Castles to whisky islands, what ever choice you want you will be sure to find the right tour for you.
Tours around Scotland can be found in many of the main tourist cities of Scotland like Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, and you will also find tour operators all over Scotland. Many small tour businesses in Scotland will offer private tours from almost any Highland areas, which specialise in their local area but will go further afield.
Scotland is a fantastic place to tour with a great road network to all the main areas, the Isle of Skye is now much more accessible since the bridge was built connecting the island to the mainland, Giving coaches and buses a much easier route than boarding a ferry, although some ferry services to the island are still in use and can make a much better experience reaching the island if you have more time.
Loch Ness is a very popular area to tour and boat trips that venture down the Caledonian Canal to Loch Ness are a very popular choice, tours sailing the loch can be combined with trips to Urquhart castle and the loch Ness expedition centers, these are great days out and enjoyed by all the family.
Edinburgh and Glasgow
The cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow offer great tours of the city on open top buses guiding you passed all the historical buildings and places of interest. Edinburgh offers more tours with a difference like Ghost tours and is a very popular choice all year round. Edinburgh castle is one of Scotland’s most popular attractions and defiantly a must if visiting the city.
Scotland’s ‘water of life’ Whisky is a big attraction in Scotland and most Distilleries do guided tours for the public, the larger Distilleries are often free of charge but you will find some charging a small fee, but still defiantly worth it. For the connoisseur more detailed tours can be booked giving you a more in depth tour of the Distillery and tasting sessions of their whiskies. Tours to whisky Distilleries and famous whisky areas can be toured by coach including the Spey Valley Whisky Trail and the Isle of Islay, where many of Scotland’s popular Whiskies are produced, in fact you can book a full weeks holiday just touring Scotland’s whisky heritage.
Tours to the Islands of the Hebrides and Orkney Isles are a very good choice if you love island life, with many islands around Scotland’s coast and great ferry services, most of the islands can be reached with ease, you can tour Scotland’s islands with dedicated tours specializing in Island tours. The Islands give you a different feel to Scotland, one that many tourists don’t often experience, but with fantastic marine and land wildlife a holiday to Scotland’s islands must be experienced.
