Discover Scotland

Open Canoe Along Loch Ness


Loch Ness is part of Scotland's canoe trail and is one mile across and 22 miles long. This is an ideal tour if you fancy doing some Nessie spotting (watch out for the monster!) and you also get a local professional guide. During the canoe trail there is stunning scenery to admire in the background as you paddle across the Loch.

Seal Safari Through the Sound of Mull


If you want to explore the lagoons off the coast of Scotland, there are a number of tours available which take place in a group of sheltered islands. The water is shallow, so it is ideal for those who don't want to go deep sea diving, as well as for younger children. There is a big seal colony at the Sound of Mull with between 10-20 seals that want to play at any one time (don't worry, there will be a guide with you at all times). There are also kayaks available during the tour and you may also spot porpoises, dolphins, whales, basking sharks and eagles along the way.

Fingal's Cave in Isle of Staffa


This cave is famous for it's unique structure, its size, sounds, colours and the symmetry of the columns. This creates a walkway around the outside and into the cave which is 227 feet high. Over thousands of years the environment and huge storm waves have created the unique columns of the cave and it is a great place to visit if you are interested in geography, geology or photography.

The Old Forge Pub, Inverie, Knoydart, Mallaig.

The Old Forge Pub Edit

If you want to enjoy a drink or two at a remote pub then this is the place for you. It is officially Britain's remotest pub and is 18 miles to the nearest road. There are no roads in or out of the pub area and it would be a 7 mile journey to get to it by sea. If you do manage to get to it (well done!) they specialise in some amazing seafood during the summer months!

Jacobite Steam Train


Often described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip which starts close to Ben Nevis visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station. One of the highlights of the train journey is the 21 arched Glenfinnan Viaduct made famous in the Hogwart Express scenes from the Harry Potter movies. The train stops at the point shown in the above photograph, in order to give you a perfect view of the viaduct and stunning surrounding scenery.

Helicopter Tour of Edinburgh


Flying at 2000ft is a fantastic way to see the amazing city of Edinburgh, with Edinburgh castle, The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and Leith Docks below. This is a great way to see the most famous of Edinburgh's sites, buildings and monuments and you can take some amazing photographs along the way. There are a wide range of tours available and some offer a day long itinerary including lunch whilst some focus on specific areas of Edinburgh such as the Forth Bridges.
