Tips for the Region

Scotland is famous for its huge amounts of lochs and castles and these can be useful landmarks to plan your trip around. Loch Lomond, the biggest lake in Britain, is well worth a visit. It is surrounded by stunning scenery of and contains 30 small islands. The nearby Trossachs National Park is famous for its romantic beauty and varied scenery, the result of it being on the fault line between the highlands and the lowlands. Hiking in the area is superb with excellently marked and maintained footpaths.

If you are traveling in the north in autumn or winter you have a good chance of seeing the northern lights with Northern Scotland being on the same latitude as Stavinger, Norway. If you are into rocky mountainous terrain you will be spoilt for choice with the Glens, the Munros, the Corbetts and the Grahams all offering high altitudes and majestic scenery. For iconic views and staggering geological formations the Isle of Sky is also a must-see. The island also has one of Scotland's new dark sky parks, which take advantage of Scotland's wilderness to enjoy the age old activity of stargazing.

How to get to the Isle of Sky from the Scottish mainland:

  • Take the Skye Bridge that connects the village Kyle of Localsh with Kyleakin on Skye
  • The privately owned Glenelg ferry connects Glenelg with Kylerhea on Skye
  • Take the Calmac ferry that goes from the port of Mallaig to Armadale in Sleat, in the south of the island

Important Cities

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is an architectural delight at every turn with fantastic medieval tenements, winding lanes and Georgian splendor. Besides its well preserved architecture and listing as a Unesco World Heritage Site, Scotland's capital also boasts the famous Edinburgh Festival. Every summer people from all over the world come to the city for its hundreds of fringe theater and comedy shows. The city is also surrounded by the natural beauty of the Lothians, which are well worth exploring in your rental car.A climb to the top of the prehistoric volcano Arthurs Seat for some of the best views of the city is also recommended.

Glasgow

Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and bursts with life and character. It has an amazing arts and music scene so be sure to check the gallery and live music listings. Its architecture is stunning and diverse, with older buildings setting a stark contrast to bold, modern and contemporary buildings. The city's residents are known for their friendliness that gives charm to Glasgow's edgy urban and cosmopolitan sensibilities. Keep an eye out for buildings designed by the legendary Charles Rennie Makintosch, they are scattered all over the city!

Perth

Another city of architectural splendor is Perth, connected to Edinburgh by the M90 to the south. Perth has exquisite restaurants, independent boutiques, excellent castles and traditional tearooms. We highly recommend taking a trip to the outskirts of Perth in your car rental to visit Scone Palace. The palace is a luxurious country house steeped in history, being the coronation place of many Scottish monarchs, and it is only two miles north of Perth's town center.

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children

Climate

Known for its unpredictable weather, Scotland can be rainy one second then bathed in glorious sunshine the next. The dramatic weather shifts add to the scenery with changing colors and moods. Mountainous regions are snow capped in the summer and obviously much colder all year round, at lower altitudes there are many warm sunny micro-climates due to the gulf stream.

Cuisine

Scotland has had a food revival in recent years with restaurants selling more traditional dishes with locally sourced produce, meaning the days of the deep fried mars bar are over. Seafood is in abundance due to Scotland's large fishing industry, also expect brilliant cheeses and local meats

Traveling with Children

Scotland is an excellent country for walking and camping, with many castles along the way which will delight and inspire kids. Being a country of the great outdoors there are a lot of adventure parks and activities such as climbing and kayaking. Scotland also has incredible wildlife including the highland cattle, puffins, sea eagles, Minke whales, dolphins and seals. The peak months for whale watching are June and July.
