What to see in Scotland in 4 days
Edinburgh makes a wonderful destination for a 4-day trip to Scotland. The city hosts numerous events each year, from the popular Christmas Market in December to the month-long Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. You can easily spend a day in Edinburgh, or more, strolling the cobbled streets of the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace or exploring the elegant New Town neighbourhood. If you wish to spend all three nights at an accommodation in Edinburgh, there are also several day tour options, for example a day trip to the famous university city of St Andrews.
Edinburgh is perfect for short breaks, but this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a small adventure into the majestic Scottish Highlands to see the postcard-perfect landscapes. On a 4-day Scotland tour from Edinburgh you can can spend a night in the Fort Augustus or Fort William area and visit top Highland attractions like the legendary shores of Loch Ness, Cairngorms National Park, the prehistoric Clava Cairns, the gorgeous Glen Coe area and the medieval Doune Castle. A great way to experience the best of Scotland in 4 days is to travel on a privately guided tour, with your own professional driver-guide showing you around the top sights and hidden gems of the Highlands.
Customise your 4-day tour of Scotland
With the variety of things to see and do on a 4-day Scotland tour, it’s good to have the Edinburgh-based staff of Nordic Visitor to guide your trip planning and create a custom tour of Scotland for you. All of our itineraries can be tailored with extra nights, alternative departures or arrivals in Glasgow and more, and you’ll have your own dedicated travel consultant at Nordic Visitor to advise you on itinerary options and make all local travel arrangements for you.
If you want to spend 4 days in Scotland in the Highlands by car, we highly recommend extending your tour to at least 6 days so that you have ample time for a 4-day Scotland road trip with overnights in Edinburgh before and after your scenic drive. On a Scotland tour lasting around a week it’s possible to travel to the Isle of Skye and visit other top Highland attractions such as Eilean Donan Castle, Loch Lomond, Glenfinnan Viaduct, Dunvegan Castle and other marvels.
