Discover the Many Fantastic Attractions in Scotland

There are many fine attractions in Scotland that are definitely worth seeing. In fact, you’ll probably find that there is so much to choose from that you won't know where to start. We cannot tell you which attractions will appeal most to you, but we can give you a little information on many of Scotland’s top attractions, which will help you decide for yourself.

A great many of the attractions in Scotland are nature-orientated and will either get you acquainted with the local flora and fauna or will give you insight into some of the creatures found around the world. The Five Sisters Zoo Park, the Beecraigs Country Park, the Macduff Marine Aquarium, the Edinburgh Zoo, the St Andrew’s Aquarium and the Cairngorm Reindeer Center are all nature-based attractions with very different appeal. Other attractions may have a more historical interest such as the Royal Yacht Britannia and the Jarlshof Prehistoric and Norse Settlement or historical and educational value of which the Edinburgh University is probably the best example. Many visitors enjoy visiting attractions based on local legend, such as the Wallace Monument and the Official Loch Ness Exhibition Center, while others prefer to stick to the cold hard facts and tour scientific attractions such as the Stratosphere Science Center and the Glasgow Science Center. Whatever your preference is, you can be sure that you will find something in Scotland that appeals to you.

Of course some attractions are better suited to people with small children than are others and some cater almost exclusively for children. One example of this is the Pitlochry Children’s Amusement Park. However, most of the facilities are well developed and offer not only wheelchair access and handy information but also baby changing facilities and other necessary amenities. All this makes for a great day out, regardless of your circumstances, and a most memorable trip to Scotland.
