Irn-Bru, Whisky and battered Mars bars?
There’s a bit more to this wee country than these infamous exports! But how do you taste the real essence of Scotland?
We spend a while explaining to people what we love about Scotland. But this time we’ve filtered it down to just 5 quintessential experiences. These seem to sum it up for us. Here’s Our Top 5 Classic Scottish Experiences.
1. Find some space
- Our company name may give you a hint, but we have a bit of a thing for Scotland’s wild places.
Our time table for sea kayaking in The summer Isles – many beautiful islands dot the coastline.
2. Eat Fresh
Scottish cuisine has a rich and diverse heritage. Get a taste of Scotland’s natural larder, the fresher the better.
3. Start an adventure
Adventure is a state of mind. Find your own sense of adventure by trying something new this year. Whether you’re scaling new peaks, paddling, pedalling or just rambling. Scotland makes a great place to play.
4. Meet the locals
Say hello to our neighbours. A Scottish wildlife experience is one to remember. The two-legged locals aren’t too bad either! Go for a pint and a chat.
5. Experience history
You don’t have to move much to meet some of Scotland’s ancient history. It’s a part of the fabric that makes Scotland great. Get amongst it.
