Renowned for its moors of purple heather, romantic ruins, deep lakes and burly menfolk dressed in kilts playing the bagpipes, your stay in Scotland will be unforgettable! Its unspoiled grandiose landscape, unique in Europe and home to stags, eagles, seals and even dolphins, will without doubt be the highlight of your trip. The craggy landscape of the Trossachs and the sparkling water of Loch Lomond, which form Scotland's largest National Park, will stop you dead in your tracks. This fantastic playground has no lack of outdoor activities for all the family. The unspoiled, seemingly endless landscapes of the Highlands, liberally strewn with photogenic ruins, forbidding mountains and misty lochs, are perhaps the most emblematic image of Scotland. The coastline is, however, equally, sublime, ranging from sheer cliffs, fjords worthy of Scandinavia, tiny colourful fishing harbours and long stretches of pristine beaches... After you have drunk your fill of castles on windswept moors, head for the medieval lanes of Edinburgh, taking in the modernist marvels of Glasgow on the way to get the full measure of an architectural heritage that is fully equal to such unique landscapes. Sights to behold indeed!
