The best activities in Scotland
Cities, towns, villages and even remote islands – Scotland’s landscape is vast. But if you want the best lodges with hot tubs, take a look at these popular areas.
Best for? Incredible views
Our top property pick: Duneira
As the largest inland stretch of water in the UK, Loch Lomond is truly unique. As soon as you see it, you’ll understand why it’s been the inspiration for many books and love songs over the years too. It lies in The Trossachs National Park meaning there’s lots of walking trails, hiking routes and watersport opportunities and, of course, a few cosy inns and pubs dotted around. It’s also home to some luxurious hot tub lodges with amazing views and even swimming pools.
Best for? Its culture
Our top property pick: Moorhen Lodge
Often referred to as the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands, Inverness sits on the northeast coast and is a city unlike any other. While you can expect the attractions and charm that any other UK city has, here you also have access to incredible countryside and coastline. With so much to see and do, it’s a great choice for families and large groups – and a day trip to Loch Ness is a must.
Argyll & The Isles
Best for? Getting out in the great outdoors
Our top property pick: Sobrachan
On the west coast of Scotland lies Argyll & The Isles – 23 inhabited islands which each boast secluded beaches, incredible island cultures, amazing scenery and lots of natural beauty. With seven National Nature Reserves plus lots of other gardens, rugged landscapes and parks to explore, Argyll & The Isles is one of the best places to see some of Scotland’s rarest and best-loved animals. Look out for red deer, seals, otters, puffins and golden eagles to name a few..
Best for? Foodies
Our top property pick: Glen Euchar House
It might be unofficially named as the West Highlands’ capital but in recent years it’s also been referred to as the Seafood Capital of Scotland. Being so close to the sea and the Gateway to the Hebridean Isles means fish here are rife and local restaurants are firmly putting their stamp on the global culinary map. Of course, if fish isn’t for you, there’s plenty of other reasons to visit Oban and lots of other dishes on the menu. Watersports, museums, walking trails and the incredible views keep holidaymakers of all ages very busy.
Best for? A lively atmosphere
Our top property pick: Ralston Bothy
Perth is lively, bustling and brimming with independent shops, cafes and bars. It’s situated on the River Tay and boasts a number of historical buildings, art galleries and museums which are a great way to uncover the story of this Scottish city. If you do want to venture further afield though, you’ll be pleased to know that you’re surrounded by vast countryside and even Perth Racecourse which makes for a great day out.
Eden Mill was Scotland’s first single-site brewery and distillery, and now they’ve opened their doors for tastings and tours. Watch how your favourite spirit is made, discover their tried and tested recipes and ask the experts your burning gin-related questions. It’s a great day out and the on-site gift shop gets us excited every time.
North Coast 500
Starting and ending at Inverness Castle, this road trip route covers just over 500 miles of incredible coastal scenery and countryside views. Along the way, you’ll get to see quaint villages, towns, lochs, local wildlife and awe-inspiring mountains. If you’ve got a few days to spare, it’s definitely worth it – but maybe not if you suffer from car sickness.
Heads of Ayr Farm Park
With amazing views over the coast, this family-friendly adventure park offers the chance for you to meet real-life animals as well as bumper boats and an electric tractor ride. Kids of all ages are sure to love it, including the big kids amongst you, and there’s no better place to stop for lunch and take in the coastal scenery.
Camera Obscura and World of Illusions
From the outside, this might look like any ordinary building. But, head inside, and you’ll see it’s far from normal. Split over five floors, this attraction houses more than 100 illusions as well as a staggering view of the city from the rooftop. It’s suitable for kids and adults and there’s plenty of places to go for some food and drink afterwards. Just don’t forget your camera.
The Scotch Whisky Experience
Even if you don’t really like Whisky, we guarantee you’ll enjoy The Scotch Whisky Experience. After all, it’s award-winning and even has a specialist barrel ride. Yep, you read that right. There are also a few high-tech exhibits that tell you everything you need to know about Scotland’s spirit of choice – and you get to taste it too.
