Explore Scotland – one of the last true wilderness areas of Europe – on ancient trails that reveal a vast and often empty grandeur of purple heather and bracken-covered moorland; just perfect for adventurous couples celebrating their honeymoon.
What to do and see in Scotland
Roam over scree-covered mountain slopes, through ancient pine forests and beside tranquil lochs and salmon-filled rivers that flow to rugged wind-blown coastal headlands indented with wide deserted beaches.
Cycle along the shores of Loch Lomond, Britain’s largest freshwater lake; hike the West Highland Way through the Great Glen and into the valley of Glen Coe, infamous for the 1692 Highland massacre; climb heather-clad slopes to the summit of Ben Lomond or Ben Nevis, Britain's highest peak; and follow ancient drovers’ trails past grazing deer in the Cairngorms National Park, Britain’s largest.
Rock climb the Old Man of Storr on the Isle of Skye, examine megalithic monuments on the islands of Lewis and Orkney and peer across the moody, deep waters of Loch Ness in the hope of spotting the elusive monster.
Along the way, discover ancient battlefields and the crumbling ruins of medieval castles and abbeys that remind us of Scotland’s often tragic past.
Wander amid the ruins of evocative Eilean Donan Castle, considered Scotland’s most photogenic castle; fish for salmon and trout on the Tweed or Tay; horseback ride the rolling woodland hills of the Borders; tee-off on the world’s most famous course at St Andrews; then relax at day’s end in a local pub over a wee-dram of fine malt whisky – Scotland’s finest export!
