Scotland - inspiring cities and wild adventures

From the cultural highlights of Edinburgh to the remote wilderness of the Highlands, Scotland has something to keep everyone delighted. It even caters for monster hunters. Whether you want to search for Nessie, picnic in the grounds of a fairy tale castle or enjoy a cheeky wee dram on a tour of a whisky distillery, you’ll never be bored here.

Get your adrenaline pumping

Scotland’s outdoor activities are second to none, and most have the added bonus of being set against beautiful backdrops. Go kayaking or windsurfing in the Trossachs National Park. Climb Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, taking in stunning views of the city. Hit the slopes of the Cairngorms on a ski or snowboard break in winter. Or mountain bike across the rugged terrain of Galloway Forest Park.

Enjoy free days out

Many of Scotland’s castles, museums and galleries won’t cost you a penny to visit. Take a trip down memory lane at the Museum of Childhood on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Admire Monet and Dali masterpieces at Kelvingrove Art Gallery in Glasgow. Or stand in the shadow of the awesome Kelpies at The Helix park just outside Falkirk. Planning a trip to Scotland? Whether you want to stay in the heart of Glasgow or Edinburgh, or ski in the Cairngorms, there’s a Travelodge hotel close to the action.
