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.

Absolutely love working with Nordic Visitor!

I have already traveled twice with Nordic Visitor, and am already in the process of booking a third trip! Absolutely love working with you! Every bed and breakfast we stayed at was amazing. The hosts were so welcoming with great suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The rooms were very comfortable, and the amenities were awesome! 

Paul, United Kingdom

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, September 2020

The best holidays we have ever had!

Superb!! Our first ever 'touring' holiday and right up there with the best holidays we have ever had. We are not youngsters, so this was taken on with a bit of trepidation, but were soon put at ease by the sheer quality of accommodation provided along with the superb travel itinerary book (yes, it's that thick and detailed) and map. Even though we often used local recommendations, these became our trusted companions throughout the week - and are now valued reminders of an exceptional holiday - Thankyou Nordic Visitor, we will be back!

Crystal, United States

Classic Scotland & The Orkney islands, September 2019

Wonderful experience!

Thank you so much! Our experience in Scotland was wonderful! We felt prepared for what to expect, particularly as it relates to making dinner reservations on the islands we visited. The food recommendations were excellent , the accommodations were cozy, and the recommendations for sites and attractions greatly appreciated. A special thank you to Agne who answered all my inquiries, helped us make dinner reservations and confirmed all our dates and meeting times - she was a pleasure to work with!  

David, United Kingdom

Classic Scotland, September 2020

Excellent trip

All accommodations were excellent with very friendly hosts. Car rental pickup was very quick and easy and car was excellent. Rebecca was excellent, she took all our requirements and made a personal tour for us. Her attention to detail was excellent.The documents at our first hotel were excellent especially the map with everything marked on for us.

Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, June 2019

A positive experience, beginning to end!

This tour was a positive experience for us, beginning to end. The planning by Nordic Visitor was complete, thoughtful, and worked flawlessly. Scotland was stunning and most interesting - we just wish we had more time. To Nordic Visitor: Great Job! We'll be back!

Gary, Canada

Scotland Winter World, November 2019

The accommodations, destinations and car were great!

The tour went very well. All the accommodation was excellent. We are very pleased with all the arrangements and communications that we had with Rebecca. The accommodations, destinations and car were great. Our only wish is that we would have had more time at some of the locations. We had a hard time packing it all in!

Jennifer

Express Scotland, July 2019

Nothing but great words to say about Nordic Visitor!

We were thrilled with all of our accommodations. All hosts/hostesses were very friendly and we felt very welcomed. The rental car service was also very good and thorough. And we felt as though everyone had a good working relationship as the businesses had nothing but great words to say about Nordic Visitor so we felt good that everyone was working together to make our visit a great one!
