How do visitors to Scotland decide what they want to see and do?
You may only have a short time available and choose to visit the capital, Edinburgh. Or you may want to tick off the top 10 things to do and see on TripAdvisor. Both options are reasonable, however, you will need plenty of time to travel the length and breadth of Scotland to see everything mentioned on TripAdvisor. If you are used to driving on the right-hand side of the road, you may find driving in Scotland very tiring. Not only that, the roads are narrow and winding in most parts of the country.
Choose a Coach Tour to Experience the Best of Scotland
We believe the perfect way to see a new country is to take a fun coach tour. This means you can relax and view the scenery whilst your driver takes you to all the best places. The tour company will have planned a great itinerary so that is another thing you don't have to worry about. Also, in Scotland, you drive on the left and many roads, especially in rural areas are either single track or narrow and single carriageway. Another benefit of a tour is that they will know where to park and where to find toilet stops etc.
If you plan on only spending a few days in Scotland to visit Edinburgh, we highly recommend taking one of the popular day trips from Edinburgh. This means that not only will you see Edinburgh Castle, Arthur's Seat, and the beautiful old town but you can also spend a day visiting the stunning Scottish Highlands to see the mountains and glens. The Hairy Coo has a fantastic 1 Day Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Glencoe and Ben Nevis tour. You can even take a boat trip on Loch Ness on this tour and search for the infamous Nessie!
Of course, if you can stay longer in Scotland, then a fun-packed 3 or 5 day tour of the country will allow you to see so much more of Scotland and to visit many sites including castles, cairns, mountains and whisky distilleries. On The Hairy Coo’s 5 Day Tour of Scotland, you will visit the Isle of Skye, Oban, Inverness, and St Andrews. You will be have the choice to take a seal spotting cruise along the coast of palm-tree lined Plockton on Loch Carron, take a whisky distillery tour, and take tours of St Andrews Cathedral and Eilean Donan Castle.
The Hairy Coo tours are not just a way to tick off places on your bucket list. Your knowledgeable and entertaining Scottish tour guide will tell you fascinating tales of Scotland’s history, will show you where films were made and will point out wildlife. They hope that you will leave Scotland loving it just as much as they do.
