From stunning natural beauty to enchanting castles, Scotland is like a real life fairytale. With the help of a vacation travel agency like Bliss Travel Service, we can plan out the trip of your dreams.
What is the best way to see Scotland? Scotland is best explored through an escorted land package. When you combine twisty tiny roads with driving on the left, most clients prefer to let someone else do the driving. Your vacation travel agent will help to match you to the right one based on your interests of nature, culture, castles, even the show Outlander!
It would be nearly impossible to list all of the things to do in Scotland, but I’ve done my best to narrow it down to five for now.
1. The dramatic landscapes are breathtaking.
From white sand beaches to picturesque mountainscapes, Scotland is filled with incredible landscapes everywhere you turn. The Fairy Pools in the Isle of Skye attract visitors from all over the world for their jaw-dropping beauty. For an exquisite journey filled with guaranteed photo ops, take a drive through the Highlands at sunrise or sunset. Trust me, you won’t need a filter for these Instagram pictures.
2. You’ll want to eat all the food.
Contrary to popular belief, Scotland is so much more than just haggis! The country is flush with an abundance of fresh produce and hearty comfort food. While haggis is the national dish of Scotland and should definitely be tried at least once (you’ll probably love it!), there is plenty of other mouthwatering food to be enjoyed. Seafood, meat, and potatoes are commonplace in Scottish cuisine, with a focus on locally-sourced ingredients. The meals are fresh, filling, and absolutely delicious.
3. You’ll fall in love with the stunning architecture.
With houses that date back nearly ten thousand years, the architecture alone is enough of a reason to visit Scotland. Known for boasting a wide array of architecture, you can find everything from Victorian castles to Georgian country houses. Whether you consider yourself a history buff or just someone who appreciates beautiful architecture, Scotland has no shortage of incredible buildings to marvel at. For beauty that is sure to raise eyebrows, make sure you plan stops at the famous Holyrood Palace and St. Andrews Cathedral.
4. For history buffs, you must stop at Culloden.
Culloden is an important part of Scotland's history and should not be missed. If you are a fan of the show Outlander, you will already be familiar with the story. It is one thing to learn the history in books or watch it on tv, it is another to walk the fields where the event actually occurred. The Culloden museum does an excellent job of chronicling the events that led to battle.
5. The castles will make you feel like you’re in a fairytale.
Scotland is well-known for its abundance of impressive castles. From the magical Balmoral Castle to the imposing Edinburgh Castle, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into one of your favorite Disney movies. There have been thousands of castles in Scotland over the years, many of which are immaculately preserved to this day. Not only can you visit these striking castles, but you can even stay in some of them. Nestled in Highland Perthshire and dating back to 1510, check out Dalmunzie Castle for the full royal experience.
