Scotland Travel Guides
Discover Stunning Scotland
Scotland is part of the UK but has always retained its own distinct identity as a nation and a country.
There are many Scottish symbols and traditions that are recognised across the world, such as tartan, bagpipes and whisky, but the country also has a strong history of ingenuity, art, and culture.

Why visit Scotland?
Scotland is a land of stunning scenery, historic cities and vibrant culture, with a strong identity all of its own. With DFDS ferries to Newcastle, it couldn’t be easier to travel to Scotland for a fantastic holiday seeing as Edinburgh is just a couple of hours’ drive from the port.
Scotland has long held a romantic quality for visitors, with its rugged mountains, remote castles and the sound of bagpipes drifting across misty lochs. This image may be true to some extent, but you’ll also find a vibrant modern country with bustling cities and an eclectic culture.
