Experience Scotland your way

We have tours for all varieties of travel styles and interests. See our options for exploring Scotland below.

Where to go on a 15-day road trip in Scotland

For most visitors, a Scotland trip begins with a day in Edinburgh, where you can explore such landmarks as the Edinburgh Castle and the cobbled streets of The Royal Mile. From the capital city, the most common route continues up the beautiful east coast to Aberdeenshire, through the Scottish Highlands and to the famous Isle of Skye. On such a route you can experience major attractions such as the city of St Andrews, the shores of Loch Ness, the picturesque valley of Glen Coe, Eilean Donan Castle, Cairngorms National Park, Loch Lomond, the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Dunvegan Castle and attractions near Fort William.

Another popular idea for a 15-day road trip in Scotland is to expand your route to include the secluded, pristine islands of Harris and Lewis in the Outer Hebrides as well as the Orkney Islands up north. You could also drive the scenic North Coast 500 route, considered by some to be “Scotland’s Route 66”. A 15-day driving tour of Scotland is ideal for travellers who want more free time to hike, take photos and generally relax the pace a bit, as well as experience more Scottish culture, cuisine and whisky.

What’s included in a 15-day driving tour of Scotland

Nordic Visitor’s self-drive tour packages include a rental car of your choice and everything else you need for the best Scotland driving experience, including accommodations that we select based on our own experience, your own personalised itinerary and a Scotland travel guide booklet with our local tips. We’ll also provide you with a hand-marked map of Scotland, a GPS navigation system and our own 24/7 helpline for your 15-day road trip in Scotland.

Customisations for Scotland tours in 15 days

With so many possibilities of things to see and do in 15 days in Scotland, it’s good to have the trusted Scottish travel experts at Nordic Visitor to guide your trip planning and create a tailored tour of Scotland for you. All of our itineraries can be tailored by our local experts with extra nights, alternative departures or arrivals in Glasgow, day trips from Edinburgh, and more. No matter how you’d like to tailor your trip to Scotland, you’ll have your own dedicated travel consultant at Nordic Visitor to advise you on possible add-ons and make all local travel arrangements for you.

Sharon, United States
Wonders of Scotland, September 2023

Highly recommend Nordic Visitor

This is our second tour with Nordic Visitor. Agents used before the tour were always very prompt with responses to our questions. During the tour, we found the accommodation perfect, guide very informative and friendly, and the driver got used to where we needed to go without any problems. We would definitely use Nordic Visitor again!

Alan, United States
Highlights of Scotland, May 2023

Smooth experience

Throughout the years we have travelled a lot, but never with a group tour. This trip was our first time and it did not disappoint. The tour guide, the bus driver, our fellow passengers, the weather, accommodation, variety of activities, and how smoothly everything went makes me question why we never toured like this before!

David, United States
Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye, September 2023

An unforgettable holiday

It was an unforgettable holiday. They took care of everything, and we got to wonder and explore with little hassle. If you want to visit Scotland (or anywhere else Nordic Visitor has tours) they are the way to do it. Already talking about our next adventure with Nordic Visitor.

Carol, United States
Scottish Highlands & Isle of Skye - Private, May 2023

An indescribably fantastic experience!

We are two middle-aged women who had never been to the UK before. My sister-in-law always wanted to go to Scotland, so I started researching and came upon Nordic Visitor through internet searches. I checked for reviews and found the company to be highly recommended. I started corresponding with Kirsten. She was extremely kind, very helpful and was able to put my nervous mind at ease. The package she put together for us was perfect! From my first email, the airport pick up and drop off service, and the tour with Dave, it was an indescribably fantastic experience!

Andrew, United States
Classic Scotland, June 2023

Top notch

The tour package materials were top notch. Spiral bound itinerary, recommended activities, restaurant recommendations and the large-scale road map of Scotland were a nice touch. Magdalena, our Nordic Visitor representative, responded promptly to our questions. Accomodation was all great.

Bethany, United States
Classic Scotland, May 2023

Perfect vacation!

For our 50th wedding anniversary, we trusted Nordic Visitor to make our vacation a memorable one, and they made it beyond special. Chris, our tour planner, did everything to accommodate our needs and answered our questions quickly. It was an absolutely perfect vacation!

Barbara, United States
Best of Edinburgh - Loch Ness & Highlands, June 2023

We were in good hands

As first-time visitors to Edinburgh, and senior citizens, our choice to use Nordic Visitor was an excellent one. The welcome package we received at the hotel was really helpful, with our tour vouchers, maps and restaurant recommendations. We would not have known what hotel to select and the one selected for us was perfect. The choice of tours offered was perfect for a 5-day visit. So glad to learn about the Royal Mile and visit the castle. The trip through the Highlands and Loch Ness was beautiful. Our travel agent, Rebecca, always quickly responded to email questions prior to departure. Thank you! Nordic Visitor made our trip easy and rewarding. We were in good hands.

Noreen, United States
Complete Scotland & Ireland, April 2023

Highly professional service

Nordic Visitor is a highly professional tour company. From beginning to end, we have no complaints. Our travel consultant, Chris, was very quick to answer all our questions from start to finish. Could not be more pleased.
