Countless Exciting Activities in Scotland

Scotland is a beautiful country with a lot of variety, which gives the average visitor plenty of activities to choose from. For one thing it is known as a bicycler’s paradise with many quiet country roads and cycling paths that are perfect for this activity. Those traveling light can choose to cycle from town to town and city to city as they discover many beautiful parts of Scotland that would otherwise not be noticed. Hiking is another activity that is certainly very popular – especially in the more rugged parts of the country where cycling is somewhat more difficult. Hiking enables a person to get closer to the natural surrounds without startling creatures nearby and requires only a bit of fitness and a good pair of shoes. Of course, if you are planning to hike for longer than a day, you will also have to invest in a good backpack, but some walking trails even make use of hospitable farmers who gladly provide overnight accommodation and lighten your load considerably.

Archery has been a part of the United Kingdom since the earliest times and today it is a much-loved sport. Even if you have never given it a try before, you can certainly attempt some archery in Scotland when you are on your next holiday. Local instructors will provide you with the equipment and instruction necessary to get you started and you may well discover that shooting with a bow and arrow is a whole lot of fun. For those who are a little more adventurous, there are the options of kart racing, off-road driving, paintball and skiing. Kart racing will make you feel like a child all over again as you wind your way around the karting track and do your best to overtake your friends. Paintball will give you a whole new adrenaline rush as you stalk through the bushes and try to outwit and outplay the opposing team, while off-road driving provides a mental and physical challenge that simply cannot be topped.

The tranquil sport of fishing needs no introduction and there are many, many great spots in Scotland where fishing is an every-day activity. Horse riding is a very popular way of getting out in the countryside and enjoy the wonders of nature while sphereing adds a whole new dimension to your holiday activities. So make sure you get the most out of your holiday and enjoy as many of these activities in Scotland as possible.
