Scotland is associated with the Loch Ness Basin and Braveheart. It is not a popular holiday destination, but it is well worth a visit. See what this beautiful country has to offer to tourists.

Scotland – places to see


This beautiful city full of historical spirit is the capital of Scotland. The most important building in the city, or rather its symbol, the famous castle on the Black Rock. The castle is open to tourists. Also of interest on the tourist map is Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the royal family of Scotland. Tourists can tour the palace where the ruins of the church adjacent to the apartment buildings have been preserved. When it comes to royal attractions, it is also worth visiting the huge Royal Yacht Britannia, where Princess Diana spent her honeymoon. Moreover, no tourist should miss the beautiful Old Town and New Town. It should be noted that both regions have been included in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.

Drobin Castle

The 14th-century castle is located on the shores of the North Sea, about 1.5 kilometers north of Goolsby, and is known for its long sandy beach and attractive walking paths. It is worth noting that Dunrobin Castle is different from other buildings of this type in Scotland. It was built in the style of French castles on the Loire. Interestingly – despite its fanciful appearance – Dunrobin served as a fortress in the first place. The name “Don Robin” in Gaelic means “moth hill” or “Fort Moths” and was probably named after Robert, 6th Earl of Sutherland. It was the Sutherland family that the estate had belonged to over the past centuries. The castle, with its captivating gardens, is open to the public.

Loch Ness

It is impossible to go to Scotland and not see the legendary Loch Ness. The famous lake is very deep making it the largest reservoir in the country, but it is not very popular due to its dimensions. Tourists come to this place mainly to see the legendary Loch Ness monster. People who claim to have seen him report that Nessie has a long neck and mouth, as well as two or one humped back and dark skin. According to the alleged witnesses, the beast resembled a huge fish, the size of which ranged from 6 to 10 meters. However, even if we fail to see Nessie, Loch Ness is well worth a visit due to its stunning nature and medieval castles.

Cairngorms National Park, Scotland

It is the largest national park in Great Britain by area. It covers up to 4,528 square kilometres. The reserve is located in the Cairngorms Mountains in the highlands of northern Scotland. Why is it worth visiting this place? The reasons such as the picturesque nature are obvious. Reindeer is among the unclear reasons. It is the only natural environment in Great Britain where these wonderful and beautiful animals live. It is worth noting that you can purchase a guided tour of the site and participate in feeding the reindeer.

old man from stor

It is considered one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world by lovers of nature and photography. It is worth noting that it was here in Scotland that the Hollywood science fiction movie “Prometheus” was shot. The Old Man of Storr is a rocky part of the rocky Storr mountain range on the Trotternish Peninsula. “The Old Man of Storr” literally translates to “The Old Man of Storr”. The name was created because the rock canyons resembled the face of an old man. To see this similarity after reaching the place, go to the right, ie to the left. It is worth noting that it takes about 45 minutes to get to The Old Man of Storr, if you leave the car park.
