Having used another tour company for Ireland and England just before this section of our trip I can say with one hundred percent truth that your information and documents were excellent! When we saw a paper map was included and daily ideas for the itinerary we were so happy. We didn't need electricity or wifi, we could just look at the map! An overall view like that was so much easier to use.

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!

Scotland is a country known for warm hospitality, exquisite whisky, and the rolling green hills of the Highlands. Scotland is home to some of the most attractive island-studded coastlines in the UK, as well as castles full of history and culture.

Scotland is a brilliant destination all year round, so there isn’t a “best time to go”. The most popular season to visit is the summer as the weather is milder and the days are longer. However, winter vacations in Scotland mean you could experience Hogmanay (the Scottish New Year’s celebration) and enjoy the festive spirit. Spring and autumn are great times to go as they are quieter months with fewer visitors.

For all other countries, find out if you need a visa by answering a few questions on the United Kingdom’s travel page. All visitors to Scotland and the rest of the UK will need to present a valid passport upon arrival.

We recommend that you stay for as long as you can to have more time to enjoy the country and all its beautiful scenery. However, you could see a lot of the country in a week or two, depending on the route you take and how long you want to spend in each area. We recommend you search our tours for a better idea of how long you’ll want to spend in Scotland and which attractions you’ll see along the way.

The best way to see Scotland will depend on how you like to travel. If you want plenty of flexibility and the opportunity to diverge from your route, then a self-drive trip is ideal. However, if you want to travel with an expert guide to show you around, choose a private or small group vacation.

Scotland, like the rest of the UK, drives on the left-hand side of the road. Read our guide to driving in Scotland for more rules of the road.

You can fly from a few airports in Scotland to Ireland, but Glasgow and Edinburgh have the most flight options and times. We advise flying to Dublin airport, as there are convenient routes both back to Scotland as well as a great range of international links.

If exploring both Ireland and Scotland is on your wish list, talk to our team about combination packages and custom tours.

The cost of a Scotland package will depend on the season you go and how long you want to stay. However, when you book a Nordic Visitor vacation, a lot of important aspects are included:

  • Comfortable accommodation
  • Tasty breakfasts
  • A personalised itinerary
  • Ferry crossings (where applicable)
  • Attraction fees (where applicable)

Hotels and attractions on small group guided tours are pre-booked to secure great rates. This means you can’t alter your tour, but you can extend your stay with days and nights at either end of your journey.

Self-drive and privately guided vacations are more flexible, as you decide how long you want to spend in each area. Therefore, you can add extra days and nights at any point of the itinerary.

If you’ve already booked but want to add on days, contact your dedicated travel consultant.

We recommend that you look for flight dates and times, but hold off purchasing until after your trip is confirmed by your travel consultant. Once your tour is booked, you’ll receive all of your tour details, meaning you can make a fully informed decision when it comes to buying flights.

It’s often said that if you don’t like the weather in Scotland, all you need to do is wait thirty minutes! Scottish weather is changeable, so we advise that you bring waterproof clothing and warm layers. Depending on where you travel from, you may also need to bring a power converter and plug adapter.

Here are a few things you’ll want to take on your trip:

  • Waterproof jacket and pants
  • Warm sweater or fleece
  • Walking shoes or boots
  • Insulated layers
  • Woolly socks
  • Hat, gloves and scarf
  • Bug repellant (for summer)
  • Plug adaptor (three-prong)
