Make a splash
Our vast, varied and rugged coastline provides a beguiling backdrop for those seeking a watery getaway. Whether it is navigating through white-water rapids, setting sail around the islands or paddling your way to paradise aboard a sea kayak, a few days on the water is all it takes to leave the modern world behind and discover Scotland from a new perspective.
Walk in the footsteps of greatness
Set your sights on bagging a Munro, a mountain over 3,000 ft. These eye-popping features of the Scottish landscape are ideal for many types of outdoor activities, including hill walking, climbing and wintersports.
If you enjoy a good long walk, why not try one of our multi-day challenges? The West Highland Way or the Great Glen Way will both treat you to several days of Scotland's finest scenery.
On your bike
You can cover much more land on two wheels, with the wind streaming through your hair as the Scottish scenery flashes past. There are many trails to choose from so you can break up your cycling with trips to some of our best-loved attractions, foodie stops and cosy places to stay.
If you prefer to whizz downhill, mountain-biking holidays are another option. Scotland is home to many forest trails including the 7stanes in the Borders and Dumfries & Galloway, and you'll find many routes winding their way through the hilly Highlands.
