Charming isles, rolling hills and open skies – Scotland offers up the greatest of the Great British outdoors. As Felix Happer put it in 1983’s Local Hero, ‘That’s a whole lot of scenery.’ Lochs, fringed by great green mountains, cultured cities, Irn Bru, game lodges and mighty castles really back that up.

Scotland Highlights

Charming isles, rolling hills and open skies - Scotland offers up the greatest of the Great British outdoors. As Felix Happer put it in 1983's Local Hero, 'That's a whole lot of scenery.' Lochs, fringed by great green mountains, cultured cities, Irn Bru, game lodges and mighty castles really back that claim up.

A WILD 'WILD CARD'

Whenever we feel in need of a dose of fresh air, we look to Scotland. From the breathtaking beauty of the Isle of Skye to the crumbling splendour of ancient castles, a luxury holiday in Scotland is the original detox. A country that will carry you away with its folklore, beaches that appear tropical to the eye yet feel arctic to the touch, and enchanting forests worthy of any Grimms’ Tale. Scotland is our favourite wild card.

NESSIE LIVES

An enchanting mix of remote nature reserves and vibrant cities, a luxury vacation to this country is one of our best kept secrets. Often overlooked in favour of its southern companion, a trip to Scotland is for those craving authenticity and a breath of the wild. With the help of our experts and on-site liaisons, your time in Scotland will include castles, mountains, an insiders look at the up-and-coming art scene, and - if you’re lucky - a Loch Ness monster spotting.

ENTER THE HIGHLANDS

After days admiring the famed Arthurs Seat in Edinburgh, a couple of days in the inspiring Scottish Highlands is our ideal version of a restoring and rejuvenating excursion for the body and mind. There’s both a wild and romantic feel to this part of the country, brimming with historic castles and outdoor activities for all sorts of travellers. A tailormade tour to the Highlands will ensure you’re exposed to the magic this mountainous paradise has to offer.

EXPLORE THE OUTER HEBRIDES

Scotland is home to over 700 islands, but our favorites sit on the jagged and secluded west coast of the country. This cluster of far-flung islands are littered with medieval castles, quaint cottages, white-sand beaches, and alluring landscapes. Our luxury tours of the inner and outer Herbides include seaside villages, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, a disproportionate amount of five-star meals, and private boat excursions.

DOUBLE UP WITH ENGLAND

Scotland in conjunction with its friendly neighbor England is a combination vacation that ticks every box on the perfect U.K. tour. Begin in one of the worlds greatest cities, London, exploring the likes of Buckingham Palace and Borough Market, continuing North in the following days on an all-encompassing British road trip. Visit famed Oxford, experience the gourmet cuisine of the Lake District, enjoy a stay at Scotland’s notorious Gleneagles property, and - if you fancy it - indulge in a private whiskey tasting in Edinburgh.

A HONEYMOON IN THE HIGHLANDS

The Scottish Highlands are bursting at the seams with castles that look straight out of a fairytale, and what better way to celebrate saying ‘I do’ than to enjoy Scotland's most romantic region. Removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Highlands provide visitors with true relaxation in a luxury setting unlike any other. If you need any more convincing, The Inverlochy Castle played host to Queen Victoria in 1873, where she later stated “I never saw a lovelier or more romantic spot.’

A ROOM FIT FOR ROYALS

    "Scotland has some of the UK's most incredible castles. Any and all are worth a visit, but we love the history of Scone Palace, where greats such as Robert the Bruce and Macbeth were crowned Kings of Scotland."
