When it comes to exploring Scotland, it's as much about the journey as the destination. You'll find that travelling to the main tourist spots is a piece of cake and, with a little careful planning, more remote areas are readily accessible too.

So, now to consider how you'll get around! Luckily, the country is well connected by an extensive road and rail transport network, with a variety of options available for getting from A to B. Public transport provides trains and bus services to Scottish towns and cities as well as many villages and ferry ports. Access to very remote areas and islands is straightforward by car, ferry and aeroplane.
