As a gateway to the Highlands, Inverness has matured to become one of the UK’s most spectacular cities.

Not only is it a stone’s throw away from the banks of Loch Ness, it offers a wealth of cultural and shopping attractions.

There is nothing quite like starting your day with a hunt for Nessie in the warm glow of a Highland sunrise.

Castles, historic ruins and colourful tales mean you’re never far away from discovering the Highlands’ rich heritage.

Fort William
Fort William sits amongst some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

As the UK’s Outdoor Capital, it offers unrivalled skiing, walking and sporting opportunities for all the family. For those who enjoy an extreme challenge, Ben Nevis provides an unforgettable climb and the Mountain Bike World Cup is a fantastic spectacle.

Home to many a lively ceilidh – where the celebrated local malt is the toast of the guests – it is an idyllic escape.

Far more than just the Granite City, Aberdeen has established itself as an unmissable shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

As well as being home to the oil and gas sector, Aberdeen is the north east’s go-to spot for art, theatre, music and festivals.

And for fans of the Royal Family, the chance to travel to nearby Balmoral will prove irresistible.

Castles, dungeons, ghosts and tunnels give Scotland’s capital an air of mystique, but there’s more to Edinburgh than history and creepy tales.

Known as the Festival City, Edinburgh traditionally comes alive in August when art, comedy, film, music, dance and book festivals are all held.

Most famous of all is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, held every August in the Unesco City of Literature.

Wake up in Glasgow to enjoy the famous west coast welcome and discover a city with more to offer than you think.

With a real passion for live music, sport and comedy, Scotland’s largest city is well-known for its entertainers.

A haven for shoppers thanks to the Style Mile, Merchant City and the West End, Glasgow also has a growing reputation for the quality and breadth of food it offers.

A hub for business, entertainment and leisure, the UK’s capital is one of the country’s liveliest destinations.

Visiting attractions such as the famous Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace to hidden gems such as the Merton Abbey Mills craft village makes every trip to London unique.

Extensive transport links and Euston Station’s central location make it an attractive arrival point for business commuters too.
