Top 10 things to do in Scotland.

Written by

Some recommendations for the visitor and residents of Scotland.  Make the most of the events and activities on your doorstep.

Walking

Whether a leisurely walk or a more strenuous hill walk or even tackling a Munro the scenery is spectacular and you can have days of fun filled rambling. It’s also FREE!

Visit a Castle

Whether it is Edinburgh or Stirling or a ruined rural fortress step back in history and immerse yourself in the past.

Time on the Beach

Miles and miles of perfectly sandy beaches with windswept vista perfect for a stroll whether you have a dog to walk or not.  But don’t be fooled they may look like the idyllic Caribbean shoreline but very rarely have the same weather conditions!

Whisky

A distillery tour will open your mind and taste buds to an experience that will tantalise all the senses. If you have a dedicated driver why not sample a few and take part in a tasting.  Learn and become a connoisseur.

Driving

Whether it is the Ayrshire coastline, the rolling border hills, picturesque Glencoe or the Scotland “route 66” around Caithness and Sutherland the panorama, the moody skies and the atmospheric landscapes will keep you mesmerised.

Golf

Everyone has heard of the likes of St Andrews, Turnberry, Troon and Gleneagles but Scotland is blessed with many a course that will challenge even the most accomplished golfer and those that will not break the bank for a round.

Culture

Whether it is the Edinburgh Festival and the Fringe, or just the developing café culture Scotland has something for everyone.  Watch the world go by or actively get involved there is fun, entertainment and culturally enhancing events inside and out, Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond.

Highland Games

Time your visit right and experience the Gathering! Whether it is Braemar or not events like tossing the caber at the small highland village games is a new experience for most.  You will experience the hammer, highland dancing and running races.  You might be able to take part in some of the invitational events.

Sporting Events

Experiencing an Old Firm game or sitting in the Stand at Murrayfield watching the passionate fan support are places to tick off on that sporting bucket list. Yet there are others to consider, what about the Chris Hoy velodrome and a cycling event, a local curling meet or even a mountain biking event that has competitors hurtling down mountain and woodland tracks.   

Screen Set and Location Spotting

Over the years, several blockbusting films have been made in Scotland and whether it is an organised tour or you are on a mission to be photographed where the famous Hollywood actor stood you won’t be disappointed with the choice but remember backdrops are often studio or post production enhanced.  Films such as Highlander, Local Hero, Trainspotting, Forty Nine Steps to name a few or maybe TV Series like Outlander, Taggart and Monarch of the Glen might take your fancy.
