Your guide to Scotland

Whisky, wildlife and a hearty welcome – Scotland is an ever popular holiday destination with so much to offer visitors at any time of year. From striking landscapes, a plethora of medieval castles and countless film locations to its warm hospitality, expertly crafted whisky and delicious food and drink experiences, Scotland has so much to offer, and there are more reasons than ever to visit.

Overwhelmingly beautiful and charmingly hospitable, Scotland offers visitors more than any other destination in the UK. With the breathtaking scenery of its Munros and the brooding serenity of its lochs, Scotland is the perfect destination for a break whatever the season. 

 

Step out and explore Scotland’s rugged landscape, journey through jaw-dropping scenery and marvel at its sensational coastline. Scotland provides a beautiful and romantic backdrop for a sensational holiday. With an incredible diversity between the breathtaking natural landscape of the countryside and architectural wonders of its cities, there’s a wealth of things to see and do wherever you stay. 

There is Edinburgh, the country’s cosmopolitan capital, surrounded by miles of countryside and bordered by the pretty coastline of the Lothians. You can also visit the ancient village of Skara Brae and discover Bronze Age life between 3180 and 2500 BC, and take a trip to the spellbinding Isle of Skye to walk in the footprints of dinosaurs dating back 165 million years. While you are there, discover the enchanting Fairy Pools with their natural waterfalls and mystical vibe. 

Don't forget to meander along Scotland’s miles of sparkling sands and admire the jaw-dropping views across the ocean; or take a boat to Fingal’s Cave where the remarkable basalt columns will simply take your breath away. Wander through Scotland’s dreamy castles, from majestic 13th Century Eilean Donan to the unique graffiti-covered Kelburn, each has a fascinating story to tell. You can also discover the country’s blood-soaked past at the atmospheric site of Culloden where headstones mark the graves of those who fell for the Jacobite cause, or delve into the ruins of eerie Hermitage castle, which played a significant part in Scotland’s struggles to control the border with England during the late Middle Ages. 

Take advantage of Scotland’s generous natural larder and enjoy the abundance of incredible fresh ingredients on offer, from mouthwatering Scottish salmon and homegrown freshly-picked vegetables to traditional local favourites that include black pudding and haggis. Sample the Lorne sausage made from minced meat, rusk and spices or taste an authentic dish of Stovies made from potatoes, onion and meat. Of course, a visit to Scotland wouldn’t be complete without a trip to a true Scotland distillery and a wee taste of the hand-crafted, artisan whiskies that are made using traditional time-tested methods. 

There’s no better way to experience Scotland than at one of our Bay hotels, with a superb range of Scottish locations to choose from. Discover the awe-inspiring landscape of Argyll and Bute, lose yourself in the enthralling scenery of the Scottish borders or experience the magic of the Highlands with the stunning beauty of Loch Lomond on your doorstep.

What our guests have to say

Local Attractions

Culloden Battlefield

This moving location, cared for by the National Trust for Scotland, was the site of the final Jacobite Rising in 1746 when 1,500 men or so were slaughtered in less than an hour. The well-thought-out Visitor Centre stands next to the site and tells the story through artefacts and interactive displays, guiding guests through this pivotal historical moment in a sensitive and stimulating way.

Steall Falls

These beautiful falls are best appreciated as part of a gentle walk, which isn’t too challenging but does require good footwear. Heading to the falls, you’ll be rewarded by the stunning scenery of this beautiful Highland Glen where the local cattle graze. The lower falls are impressive following wet weather, while the higher falls offer a real display of power. With a single drop of 390ft, the falls are Scotland’s second highest waterfall and the views are superb

Jacobite Steam Train

This railway journey is an incredible way to tour the area. It takes you on an 84-mile round trip past Ben Nevis, Loch Morar, River Morar and the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis. Both the trains and the route were used as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter films. Check the service times before you visit

Ben Nevis Distillery

Nestled at the foot of majestic Ben Nevis is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries, incorporating a fascinating visitor centre and former bottling hall. Discover the story of the Dew of Ben Nevis presented by the mythical ‘Hector McDram’, before touring through the production areas and enjoying a wee dram with your tour guide.

Inveraray Jail

An incredibly well-preserved jail and courtroom complex, Inveraray offers its visitors the chance to experience life in a 19th-century prison and see how the prisoners – some of whom were just children – went about their daily lives. The eerie buildings are brought to life by real-life actors who tell their stories of injustice and poor conditions, torture and transportation in a colourful and accessible way.
