Fancy a getaway from the everyday? You can pack so much fun into a short holiday or weekend break in Scotland that it will feel like a true escape. You can dazzle yourself in the cool shops of Glasgow in the morning and in the afternoon be surrounded by wild mountains in Glencoe. Or lose yourself in the Highlands for two days of peaceful fishing that will make the real world feel like a distant memory on your weekend getaway in Scotland.
Hop on a bus in the centre of Glasgow or Edinburgh and in less than an hour you can be deep in the romance of Rob Roy country. A little later you could be gazing at the jagged mountains of the Isle of Skye, with an expert guide on hand to tell the history of the beauty surrounding you. Or perhaps you want to track down your ancestors? In Scotland, you can take amazing tours by coach, canal boat, steam train and even motorbike!
See in the new year at a Hogmanay festival - no one does an end of year party quite like the Scots. The whole country takes the 2nd of January off work as well as the 1st, just to get our breath back! Do you have the stamina? Or celebrate the arrival of the dark half of the year Celtic-style at the mysterious Beltane festival. There are some truly spectacular events to experience throughout the year as part of a seasonal break.
Fancy the adventure and adrenaline of white-water rafting and indoor ice-climbing? Or the scary thrills of a ghost tour and a visit to the best museum in Europe? You can even do all this for less with family tickets and free admission to many places during your mini family break in Scotland.
