Steeped in Culture and Heritage

Scotland is a country which is steeped in culture and heritage, past and present. From its historical figures, Nobel Prize winners, actors and literary geniuses (think J.K Rowling and Conan Doyle), this is a place which has inspired and continues to do so.

Scotland’s scenery is world-renowned and is home to wild rugged landscapes, rolling hills, glens, lochs and idyllic islands. The landscape lends itself perfectly to a range of outdoor activities from hill-walking in Cairngorms National Park to mountain biking in Galloway Forest Park and adrenalin filled pursuits in Aberfeldy; not least forgetting that Scotland is the Home of Golf.

There is plenty to discover and enjoy in Scotland’s cities too. Choose from a fantastic array of museums, galleries and attractions, and indulge in excellent shopping and fine dining. There are so many foodie options to choose from; Michelin-starred restaurants, traditional and gastro pubs, cuisines from all over the world and much more.

Check out all that Scotland has to offer at and share your experiences using #ScotSpirit.
