Map 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. The weather in Scotland may be chilly, but the welcome is always warm.Find out more about Scotlandchevron_right
