A place of wonder and adventure, Scotland has more than enough to fill even the longest of holidays. It’s a place where culture and natural beauty can be enjoyed everywhere, from the rolling hills of the Highlands to cities including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Perth. Street performers stand outside shops in busier cities, greeting the tourists with their bagpipe music and Scottish dances, whilst the spectacular snow-capped Cairngorms feel like an altogether different country with reindeer, sled rides and lovely little log cabins.
Scotland is home to the Galloway Forest Park – a magical outdoor space where you can lie back after the sun’s gone down and watch the Milky Way. It’s a place where you can enjoy a different golf course every day of the week, without straying far from your accommodation, and where there are rugged countryside landscapes and golden beaches that look out over azure and crystal waters. You’ll find that Scotland is a place or romance and wonder, with a rich history and heritage that is almost impossible to escape.
Let the kids brandish their imaginary swords, and re-enact the lives of Scotland’s knights of old in any of the country’s many castles. Let them search for fossils along the cliffs, or try to explain the mysterious illusions at Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura. Take your loved one for a sunset stroll by the beach, a picnic in the countryside or a boat ride on one of the many peaceful lochs. Go as a family to Loch Ness, and search for the elusive Loch Ness Monster, or find a much wider range of creatures at the Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park.
See in the New Year on a Scotland Hogmanay break, where you’re likely to find that the party atmosphere makes it your best New Year ever. Watch a torchlight procession, look into the flames of a bonfire or make your way into a loud and lively local pub for a rendition of Auld Lang Syne as the clock strikes midnight. The people of Scotland really know how to celebrate, and other annual festivals include the Edinburgh Festival, the Wickerman Festival and the Highland Games.
Scottish food specialities include Edinburgh rock, Scottish shortbread and haggis with neeps and tatties. On your visit, don’t forget to try authentic Scottish meals at your hotel restaurant or out and about on your travels.
Whatever you want from your short break or holiday, you’re sure to find it in Wales. There are little mining villages, towering mountains with some of the world’s best walking trails and cities where you’ll find theatres, entertainment venues and all sorts of tourist attractions. Wales is home to more than 500 dramatic castles, and to secluded sandy beaches as well as those lovely seaside resorts that offer a nostalgic reminder of childhood holidays and have changed very little for almost 200 years.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re visiting for a weekend getaway, a memorable honeymoon or a family holiday, you’ll find that there are so many things to do. You’ll want to fill dozens of photo albums with pictures of the breathtakingly beautiful scenes that you see on your travels, and you’ll have so many stories to tell. Kids can feel like real adventurers, and lovers can lie on the beach as the sun sets and the stars light up the sky.
The city of Cardiff is a shopper’s paradise, and also offers excellent nightlife and some of the UK’s best theatres and entertainment venues. Big names perform at the Motorpoint Arena, and Cardiff Castle often doubles up as a venue for open-air concerts.
Sci-fi fans will be able to visit the Doctor Who Experience. The show, like its spin-off Torchwood, has been filmed in and around the Cardiff area for years. The Doctor Who Experience is an interactive attraction where you can fly the TARDIS, fight the Doctor’s enemies and see costumes and props that have been used in the TV show.
Book a city break, a visit to the country or a holiday by the coast. Enjoy the colours of the National Botanic Garden of Wales, or take a look at the tigers at the Welsh Mountain Zoo. Climb Snowdon, or enjoy a ride to the top on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. Treat yourself to a spa day, or tour the wonderful and mysterious locations used in films and TV shows including the Harry Potter movies, BBC’s Merlin, the Bond movie Die Another Day and the comedy TV series Gavin and Stacey.
Each morning, wake to a new day of endless possibilities and fill your day with anything from white-water rafting to a tour of a Welsh mine, a walk through a show cave or voyage through King Arthur’s Labyrinth.
