While you may envision bagpipes and kilts when you think of Scotland, the country is so much more than just adornments. From the stone circles of the Orkney Islands and the Isle of Lewis to the rugged mountains of the Cairngorms to the many walkable trails and Munros throughout all regions, Scotland will simply take your breath away. If you're dreaming of researching your Scottish ancestors, counting castles, skiing, or simply relaxing on the Isle of Skye, enter this enchanting country on a flight to Edinburgh.
Whether you choose to remain in one of many hotels in Edinburgh for your stay or you choose to lodge in another area, the possibilities for exciting activities throughout the country are endless. The particular region in which Scotland hotels are located in, however, will greatly determine the activities that are available. For those that are interested in sightseeing, the city of Glasgow and Loch Ness region are both filled with extravagant architecture and landscapes. While Glasgow houses the Scottish Football Museum, the town of Drumnadrochit is home to the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition, where visitors can learn all about the beloved local "loch monster," Nessie. Other popular areas in Scotland include cities such as St. Andrews, Perth, and Stirling. While St. Andrews is known as the home of golf, the cities of Perth and Stirling are best known for their breathtaking castles. With Stone Palace in Perth and Stirling Castle in Stirling, both areas present excellent vacation photo opportunities. For those traveling with unforgettable ski or snowboard adventures on the Scottish mountains in mind, the best opportunities can be found in the Cairngorms, to the east of Loch Ness.
