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.

I was lucky enough to visit Scotland in April 09. My daughter took me for our birthdays. We were also guests to a family that showed us their Scotland, mostly around the County of Fife. I am planning my wedding and would really love to get married on Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, would love some ideas if anyone is welling to share.

Hi, Scotland is the most beautiful place in the world. We have recently opened a bed and breakfast in an old manor house near Stirling and although we've only lived here for six months, I would never live anywhere else, not even Ireland which is my home! Sterling castle and the Wallace Monument are always worth a visit and if staying in edinburgh and feeling energetic look into having individual sword fighting tuition. Enjoy your trip.
Evie, We are coming in May 2011 and would love to stay at your B & B. What is it called? Thanks.
