From the Bronze Age Clava Cairns to Culloden Battlefield, site of the final, fateful clash of the Jacobite Risings, you can connect with the past at a range of remarkable places in and around the city, as well as trying to catch a glimpse of the infamous Loch Ness Monster...

Dundee

Whether it is shopping or exploring, the City of Discovery has it all. Why not visit the RSS Discovery and follow in the footsteps of Captain Scott and his heroic team and find out about the heroes of the ice who braved the hard conditions of the Antarctic and hear their stories first hand. Afterwards you can visit the Wellgate and Overgate Shopping Centres and shop till you drop, then have lunch in one of the many restaurants available in the City Centre.

Perth

Once upon a time, Perth was the capital of Scotland and a picturesque playground for kings and queens. Today, the city is laced with gorgeous city architecture, unrivalled surrounding landscapes and an intriguing royal history.

Glasgow

Scotland’s largest city certainly has plenty to offer, from independent retailers to designer outlets, world class museums, wonderful parks, unique attractions as well as an excellent range of bars, pubs and restaurants.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

St. Andrews

St. Andrews is a seaside town northeast of Edinburgh, on Scotland’s east coast. It's known for its many golf courses, including the Old Course, with the landmark Swilcan Bridge at the 18th hole. The British Golf Museum chronicles the history of U.K. golf. On a headland nearby are the ruins of St. Andrews Castle, with its medieval bottle dungeon. Close to the castle is the University of St. Andrews, founded in 1413.
