Regions of Scotland

A heady mix of wild places and culture, Scotland is more than the sum of its parts: idyllic island beaches; raw and beautiful glens; untamed wildlife; historic cities. Whether you want to let your hair down at a folk music festival, sample oysters at Loch Fyne or seek solitude on a Munro, use our map of Scotland to start planning your trip.

Despite its ‘wee’ size, there is plenty to explore in this diverse country. From outdoor pursuits on world-class mountain-biking trails in the Borders to ‘nosing’ rich, peaty whiskies on the remote Isle of Islay, Scotland has a rich heritage to experience. For culture, head to Glasgow and discover new bands on the city’s legendary live-music scene. Or plan your trip in August, and see Edinburgh transformed during the bewildering, inspiring, exhausting and endlessly entertaining Edinburgh Festival.
