City Breaks with Country Escapes

Spend a few days enjoying the attractions and atmosphere of one of Scotland's seven cities before heading out to an enchanting countryside destination for a country holiday in the fresh air. With good transport links and relatively short distances to travel, in Scotland it's easy to combine a city stay with some time in the beautiful countryside.

We've suggested three stunning country breaks that are easily accessible from each city, two that are closer by and one further afield, all with transport suggestions, travel times and links to accommodation.
