Scotland was recently voted ‘the most beautiful country in the world’ by readers of Rough Guides. But what makes Scotland so special and worthy of this accolade?
First of all, the scenery is second to none. With truly breathtaking landscapes made up of wild beaches, mystical lochs, rugged mountains, ancient forests, rolling landscape and fairytale castles, adventures await around every corner.
Scotland’s ancient cityscapes will also inspire. Each of the seven cities offer something incredibly unique, from eye-popping architecture and fascinating history to hidden gems, royal palaces and cultural hotspots. Taste your way around the cities, with fabulous local produce on offer in trendy restaurants, cosy gastro pubs and elegant bars, as well as in the 12 Michelin-starred restaurants scattered across Scotland.
Now is a great time to visit, with a feast of sport and culture events to look forward to as Glasgow is set to host UEFA EURO 2020. It is easy to see why Scotland is the #perfectstage with energetic crowds bringing energy, fun and atmosphere to every event.
