Discover the rugged beauty of Scotland on one of JOURNEYS' active itineraries in this wild and diverse corner of northern Europe, surrounded by the North Atlantic, the North Sea, and the Irish Sea, among jagged cliffs, pastoral meadows, and quaint villages. JOURNEYS' professional guides lead a variety of culture and adventure trips to this ancient land.
Explore the quiet beauty of the Highlands and her islands, the deep and mysterious lochs of the northwest, the stunning beaches of the Hebrides, and the sub-Arctic plateau of Cairngorms. Even further afield, search out the desolate beauty, Viking ruins, ancient villages, and abundant bird life of the Orkney and Shetland islands. And, of course, at the beginning or end of your wilderness adventures, absorb the culture and history of Edinburgh and Glasgow, both gateways to the country, including superb castles, ruins, and city life.
JOURNEYS can help you select among established itinerary options, or we invite you to challenge us with your dream Scotland travel experience. For a wide-ranging trip with maximum options for ferries running to outlying islands, the best time for travel is between April and September.
