Book your holiday to Scotland with Wendy Wu Tours
Scotland holidays offer the perfect combination of rich history and vibrant living culture. With dramatic landscapes, cosmopolitan cities, remote lonely isles and convivial festivals, this is a nation of captivating contrasts.
Scotland’s history stretches back over 10,000 years from mythical heroes, through Celts, Romans, Vikings, clans and royal intrigue to engineering marvels of the modern world. Scattered amongst the beautiful scenery your footsteps will lead you amongst eerie standing stones, grand castles and opulent stately homes that are testament to the fluctuating fortunes of the people that have called this country home for millenia.
Scotland’s landscapes are undoubtedly the star of the show, think lofty mountains, vast tranquil lochs, emerald forests and wild unspoilt golden beaches. From the undulating rich farmsteads of the lowlands through the soaring peaks of the highlands to the remote and rugged islands off-shore, the natural beauty on show will simply take your breath away.
The cities are no slouches either! From centres of royal intrigue to powerhouses of the British empire, the cities are packed with historical reminders from lofty castles and crooked medieval lanes to grand Georgian terraces. A world famous calendar of festivals draw visitors from across the globe and the welcoming hospitality ranges from friendly cosy pubs to Michelin starred restaurants.
Scotland is also home to some wonderfully scenic railway lines, marvels of engineering where Victorian ingenuity has carved picturesque highways through the captivating scenery. Riding the Jacobite steam railway over the vast sweep of the Glenfinnan Viaduct sums up Scotland perfectly; romance, history and natural beauty that will bring a tear to your eye.
