Towering mountains, glittering lochs, dense woodlands and miles upon miles of golden beaches - Scotland's landscapes really will take your breath away. Tour the rolling hills and lush farmland of the Lowlands, or drive through deep glens surrounded by mountains in the Highlands. Uncover magnificent coastal features in the west, and explore the atmospheric, royal settings of the east.
Head to one of our Dark Sky Parks or spots where you can marvel at the sparkling night sky, dip your toes into our crisp sea water, wander around one of the many glistening fresh-water lochs, or venture out into the wilderness to see if you can catch the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.
You can now travel short distances of around 5 miles to enjoy the outdoors and exercise in Scotland, to use public spaces for recreational purposes such as sitting to soak up the sun (where possible!), and to meet up with one other household in small numbers. Please remember to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times, both indoors and outdoors.
