Weekend city breaks
City breaks offer a diverse range of experiences for you to enjoy, whether you want to visit museums and galleries, take in historic sites or indulge in some retail therapy. Scotland’s seven cities each have their own unique things to see and do.
Glasgow, Scotland’s capital of shopping is also a top destination to discover the iconic designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Inverness makes an excellent choice for a bank holiday break, offering city culture amid the stunning Highlands and Loch Ness. Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh is ideal for a weekend break, with world-famous attractions within easy reach of the city centre.
Long weekends in the country
Leave the hustle and bustle behind and set off on a bank holiday break to Scotland’s coast and countryside. From outdoor pursuits in Perthshire, the adventure capital of Scotland, to relaxing hotel stays, tours of Scotland and budget breaks, there are plenty short breaks to choose from.
Each season creates a different outdoors experience, from snowdrop displays at gardens and parks in early spring, to the loud bellows of the autumnal deer rut and winter blankets of snow in the Cairngorms National Park.
Family things to do
Castles, museums and other family attractions often organise great activities and events over bank holiday weekends to ensure that everyone is entertained, especially during Easter school holidays and half-term. Find great deals with family passes and free attractions which help your break to be a great success.
