Bus, boat and train tours

Coach tours are a great way to make the most of your time in Scotland, whether it’s a day trip, a weekend minibus tours or a weeklong coach excursion. Most of Scotland’s cities also offer great value sightseeing bus trips which provide a whirlwind tour of the city’s main attractions and must-see sights.

Another great option for enjoying Scotland’s stunning scenery is by boat. Book a day trip to the islands to get close to birds and marine wildlife or enjoy a longer tour which can range from a leisurely self-catering boat holiday along a canal to luxury hotel barges and boats. 

Children and adults alike love taking a ride on a traditional steam or vintage diesel train, which both offer an exciting window into the past and are a great way to enjoy the scenery.
