Explore Scotland with Scotland Tours

Scotland is truly a land of variety. There are so many things to see and do here that you will likely find yourself struggling to pick and choose between the many different tours that are available, among other things. Many of us might have heard of Scotland's famous Whisky tours, but may find it hard to imagine what other items might be offered as a tour package. The following is a brief description of some of these tours.

Golf tours are quite popular – being able to play golf on some of the country’s most splendid greens is, for some, the ultimate tour. If you come during the months when the days are longer, you will likely even be able to enjoy your game at almost midnight under a dull sky. Few golfers could ask for more.

Another popular concept is that of boat tours. You can spend some time cruising up the rivers, or better yet, go monster hunting in Loch Ness. Some tour operators offer hi-tech sonar equipment with which to find the infamous Nessie, while others simply kick back and give you the chance to relax. The choice is yours.

If you are planning to visit some of the cities and don’t know where to begin, why not take a guided city tour. Such tours are available in virtually every big city in Scotland and they help you to take in all the best sites. Usually you’ll learn a little about the fascinating history of the city from the guide. This is generally one of the best ways to enjoy the cities.

Another popular way to tour the country is to hop onto the saddle of a bicycle and start peddling your way across the country. Yes, cycling tours are a great way to explore the great outdoors, get around the cities in a jiffy and let you stop and enjoy the scenery along the way. Bicycles also allow you access to restful spots that you might otherwise never have seen. If you are able it is best to bring your own bicycle. Otherwise you can hire them on arrival.

Of course, the renowned brewery or whisky trails could not be left out. Taste, smell and learn as you make your way across the beautiful rugged landscapes of Scotland. There are literally hundreds of distilleries producing some of the finest whisky in the world. All are friendly enough to open their doors to visitors and let them soak up the unique flavor of Scottish whisky.

You can be sure you will also find a few other tours worth partaking in, but we have only covered some of the more popular ones here. Why not look around – you may be surprised at what you find.
