Why travel solo to Scotland?
Scotland. A country that may not be on your radar – which is exactly what lends this destination its authenticity, wild beauty and unexpected charm.
Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities to be found on the British Isles. Take a walk down the Royal Mile, and you’ll feel as if you’ve slipped into a Victorian dream – complete with dark, narrow alleys and ghostly sights (and all the more charming for it). Nicknamed the ‘Athens of the North’, this is a city home to artists, philosophers and thinkers who have left their imprint on the world, from Robert Burns to Adam Smith.
But further north in the Highlands is where the true magic happens. Rich with wildlife, deep lochs and mountains, Scotland is home to one of Europe’s wildest landscapes – and it’s the only place in the British Isles where you may see the Northern Lights. Your inner adventurer will feel right at home.
