The great outdoors
Scotland is famous for its dramatic coastlines, rolling highlands, lochs, rivers and forestry.
Just an hour’s journey north west of Glasgow is Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park which offers mountains, lochs, forests and glens. Further east, Pentland Hills Regional Park features nine peaks with amazing views of Edinburgh and the surrounding area and nearby is the Pentland Hills Gin distillery.
For those wishing to explore even further, Scotland has two National Parks, 45 National Natural Reserves, three UNESCO Global Geoparks and two UNESCO Biospheres. The Highlands are home to many mountain ranges including Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Loch Ness is one of the most well-known natural sites in Scotland and some believe it is home of the elusive Loch Ness Monster, or ‘Nessie’. However, during your stay, you are much more likely to get a glimpse of some other examples of Scotland’s beautiful wildlife, such as a red deer, a bullfinch or a highland cow.
