6 Famous Scottish Tourist Areas You Must Not Miss
There are many Scottish attractions that are considered a “must see” when you visit. We want to give you a comprehensive guide to the top 6 famous tourist areas you must not miss when planning your Scotland tours from Edinburgh.
This wonderful castle on the banks of the world-famous Loch Ness boasts more than 1000 years of history. This formidable building transports you back to medieval times and gives you a real sense of history.
You will be able to climb the spiral staircase of the tower to get great views of Loch Ness and possibly your best chance to catch a glimpse of the monster.
You can build a picture of life hundreds of years ago through the many wonderful artifacts that have been left behind by the castle’s former residents.
The next “must see” when planning your Scotland tours from Edinburgh is the Glenfinnan Viaduct, also famous for appearing in the Harry Potter films.
This bridge is not just an extra in Harry Potter, it is a spectacular viaduct and a great example of Scottish engineering. Over 100 years old, it was the first bridge of its kind made with poured concrete. The final reason to visit is the location. It is situated at the head of Loch Sheil, one of Scotland’s most beautiful lakes.
The Fairy Polls on Skye have only recently become a highly desirable tourist attraction. We have had them on our itinerary for years but with the rise of social media, many people have shared pictures of this spectacular part the Isle of Skye – thus creating an incredible buzz and desire for people to visit.
Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most recognisable castles in the world. Situated on a tiny island at the point where three lochs meet, this iconic castle view is unmistakable. When you first see the castle from the roadside, I defy anyone not to be amazed at this incredible building.
The history of the castle dates back over 1000 years, with some of the foundations have been identified as much earlier. The castle was destroyed 250 ago but was rebuilt in the last 100 years to this iconic building we know and love today.
The town of Stirling is known as the clasp that joins the Lowlands to the Highlands of Scotland. When designing your Scotland tours from Edinburgh, make sure you plan a day trip to Stirling Castle.
When you cross the threshold of the castle and glance at this amazing stronghold, you will understand why all of the Kings and Queens of our country made this their residence.
The town of St. Andrews is the last on our list but not the least. St. Andrews Uni is the third oldest English-speaking University in the world. Here you can really get a sense of its age as you wander past its ancient buildings.
St. Andrews is also known as the home of golf. For any golf fan, this is a “must see” and a pilgrimage to the Royal and Ancient club house. If you are a golf fan, our advice is that when planning your Scotland tours from Edinburgh, make sure you visit on a Sunday when the course is closed and you will be able to get the famous picture on the little bridge on the 18th hole.
