What to see in Scotland in 10 days
On a 10-day trip to Scotland it’s easy to experience many of the country’s most famous sights and scenic routes. Starting from Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, the most popular Scotland itineraries for 10 days usually include a trip up the beautiful east coast to Aberdeenshire, a journey through the rugged Scottish Highlands and some time to explore the main attractions on the Isle of Skye.
On this type of classic Scotland trip, you can visit the following highlights:
If you’re a whisky lover, another idea for a 10-day tour of Scotland is to travel to popular whisky producing regions, such as the Isle of Islay and the charming town of Oban on the west coast. Nordic Visitor’s Scotland tour packages can be tailored by our local experts with extra nights at select locations, alternative arrivals or departures from Glasgow, day tours in Edinburgh and more.
Go on an incredible 10-day Scotland road trip
Want to do the driving in Scotland and explore at your own pace? A road trip through Scotland in 10 days is the way to go if you want to take your time at popular photography sites or enjoy a bit of hiking on your route. With a longer tour by car in Scotland, for example 14 days or more, you could also drive to lesser-travelled regions such as the Orkney Islands or the far-flung isles of the Outer Hebrides.
Nordic Visitor’s self-drive tour packages include a rental car of your choice and everything else you need for the best Scotland road trip experience. Take comfort in the fact that all accommodations on your 10-day road trip in Scotland have been pre-arranged by your dedicated Nordic Visitor travel consultant in Edinburgh. And know exactly where you’re driving each day — and which optional attractions you can visit — with a personalised itinerary and Scotland travel guide booklet. We’ll also provide you with a hand-marked map of Scotland, a GPS navigation system and our own 24/7 helpline.
See the best of Scotland in 10 days on a guided tour
Don’t want to do the driving on your 10-day tour of Scotland? A guided small group tour by Nordic Visitor is the way to go. Unlike a standard bus tour, our tour groups are limited to 16 travellers so that you can enjoy more personal interactions with your local driver-guide and fellow adventurers while travelling in a comfy mini-coach. What’s more, all guided tours operated by Nordic Visitor include quality accommodations and opportunities to taste gourmet local cuisine and Scotch whisky at renowned distilleries.
Looking for a more upgraded experience? Nordic Visitor also offers bespoke privately-guided tours, which offer the flexibility of a self-drive tour but with the ease of riding in a premium 4x4 vehicle driven by a professional local guide. Private tours are a great option for those who are tracing Scottish roots or have a specific interest in Scotland’s heritage sites.
