Situated to the north of the British Isles, Scotland has a population of 5.2 million and is split mainly into 3 areas. The famous Highlands and Lowlands, along with several islands just off the coastline. It’s a country of natural beauty, where hiking tours will take you through fields of heather and off into the mountains.

 

In fact, the highest mountain in the UK is in Scotland. With Ben Nevis standing at 1,344 meters above sea level. As such, walking and hiking tours in Scotland are a popular past-time, rewarded with incredible views across the country.

 

If it’s city life you’re after, then a walking tour in Edinburgh should definitely be on your list of things to do in Scotland. Edinburgh walking tours are a great way to see both the New Town and hidden areas of the old city. There’s the impressive Edinburgh Castle, as well as the medieval era Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace.

 

Several tours in Scotland also focus around distillery tours or pub crawls, which can often be combined with a culinary experience. If it’s food you’re interested in, book yourself into a cookery school. Learn to cook with local ingredients, ready to impress friends when you arrive back home. Alternatively, in the historical cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, delve into the underworld and prepare to be spooked on a fun ghost walk.

 

As for other myths and legends, you can always go in search of the Loch Ness Monster. Believed to have been spotted on a number of occasions living deep beneath the lakes. While you’re out in the water, you could always book a fishing trip on the River Tweed or a boat tour around the Isle of Skye.
