Things to do

Deep Sea World, North Queensferry, Fife

With one of Europe’s largest collections of sharks this deep sea adventure is certainly one to get your teeth in to. From hands on rock pools to a 112m long underwater tunnel housing some rather snappy fish there’s plenty to see and do.

Edinburgh Castle

The most famous castle in Scotland, with its imposing view over the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh it can’t fail to impress. The oldest part of this castle dates from the 12th century and with bits added on over time make your way through centuries of Scottish history. It also houses the sparkling Scottish crown jewels.

RSPB Mersehead Reserve, Dumfries

Wildlife lovers this is for you! Set on the picturesque north Solway Coast this wetland and saltmarsh reserve has so much natural diversity you’ll be inspired. Take a walk along one of the many nature trails or coastal paths, stop at one of the hides for a spot of bird watching and see them thriving in their natural habitat. With an educational and illuminating visitor centre included, this is a fabulous day out for everyone.

Landmark Forest Adventure Park, Inverness-shire

How much activity can you handle in one day? Let this adventure park take on that challenge! With rock climbing, flume rides, rollercoasters and tree top walks there’s something fun here at every corner. All set in a distinctive Scottish pine forest and be sure to watch out for those cheeky red squirrels in their own adventure land.

Getting there

Whether you choose to drive or go by public transport Scotland is well served by road and rail.

The West coast mainline goes up to Glasgow and the East Coast mainline to Edinburgh and then with smaller destinations on the rail network it’s surprising how far you can get. Just make sure you check your times as the trains to more remote destinations don’t run as frequently.

Travelling by car is probably the most convenient way of seeing the remote highland or coastal areas, if you don’t like long journeys then there are plenty of scenic stop overs along the way.
