Budget Tours of Scotland
Famous the world over, for a wee country, Scotland punches well above its weight. Once here you’ll see why. With more famous icons than you can shake a stick at, you’ll be amazed at just how much Scotland has to offer. From heather covered mountains, down rushing glens to deep mysterious lochs, our landscape is spectacular. Castles dot the land, many the seats of ancient clans on whose grounds bloody battles were fought. Tartan kilts, wailing bagpipes and hairy coos are all part of our rich culture and we get into it all. Stay in a haunted castle, try a dram of malt whisky by a peat fire, listen to Gaelic speaking locals on tiny island communities or chill out on the empty sandy beaches of the Western Isles. Our Guides will ensure you get into it all with some proper Scottish hospitality thrown into the mix. See more of Scotland.
