More and more people are choosing to take their holidays in the UK rather than going abroad and holidaying in Scotland is becoming more and more popular.
Scotland has some breathtaking scenery, both inland and coastal, with plenty of things for nature lovers, walkers, hikers and sports enthusiasts. People who like fishing can also take advantage of some great opportunities for sea, river and loch fishing. Climbers can have a go at climbing Ben Nevis which is the UK's highest mountain
The country is also the original home of golf and there are plenty of courses to choose from including the famous courses at Gleneagles, St Andrews and Troon. There are plenty of opportunities for water sports and skiing is also an option. Aviemore, for example, is often held to offer the best options for winter sports enthusiasts.
Scotland is also full of history, so history and culture buffs will find plenty to do. Edinburgh has a castle, various museums, the Holyroodhouse Palace and the annual Edinburgh festival, for example. Glasgow is worth a visit to see the cathedral, the museums and the Glasgow Science Centre. If you want to go a bit farther afield, you can visit the Scottish Islands such as the Inner and Outer Hebrides, the Orkneys and Shetland.
Some people like to simply make their own holiday in Scotland whilst others will take a tour holiday. Tours can be arranged to suit all interests. Popular options include whisky tours which take you round distilleries to see how whisky is made.
