Scotland, the land of whisky, is a country filled with majestic castles, friendly locals, and beautiful landscapes. Whether you have a few days off or weeks of holiday, visiting Scotland is always a good idea.

Edinburgh is an amazing city full of things to do and places to visit. Taking a free walking tour is always a great way to discover Edinburgh. Make sure to visit Edinburgh Castle and the National Gallery of Scotland, explore the Royal Mile, see the Rosslyn Chapel, and hike Arthur’s Seat during your time in the city.

Glasgow is another great city to visit in Scotland. Spend your time hanging out at the vibrant George Square, relaxing at Glasgow Green, and visiting Glasgow Cathedral and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The Trossachs National Park, Loch Lomond, Sterling Castle, and the Isle of Arran make excellent day trips from Glasgow.

Go to Loch Ness, which is the lake that is famously known for its Loch Ness Monster. While spotting a mythical creature is a popular tourist attraction here, you can explore nearby villages and go on a hike. Inverness, the getaway point to Loch Ness, is also worth checking out.

Other than visiting top tourist destinations in Scotland, you should discover the Scottish Highlands. Touring the highlands is nothing but a blast, where you get to enjoy a rugged landscape filled with rocky shores and mystic mountains.

Dornoch, Portree, Isle of Skye, Glencoe, the Inner Hebrides, Cuillin Hills, Fort William, and Cairngorms National Park are some of the best spots that should be explored in the Scottish Highlands.

Traveling to Scotland is not complete without trying their national drink whisky. Even though you can have a Scotch whisky anywhere in the country, Laphroaig and Lagavulin distilleries in Islay are the best places for it.
