The 7 Best Day Tours in Scotland

The 7 Best Day Tours in Scotland

If you don’t already know it’s worth mentioning:  Scotland isn’t a big place.  It could fit into Canada 127 times, and if it were a US state it would rank 11th smallest, sandwiched between West Virginia and South Carolina, but by no means is this a bad thing.  What it lacks in size it makes up for in spectacular scenery, places to adventure, and its lack of square miles makes it very easy to see the sights, even if you’re on a time crunch.  If you’re staying in the ‘Central Belt’ you can go on any number of excursions and be back in time for dinner and a well-earned drink.

7. Catch a City Bus Tour

If you don’t want to spend the whole day walking, or if the changeable weather takes a turn, then get a ticket for a hop-on-hop-off bus tour.  Buses run in Glasgow, Inverness, Oban and Edinburgh – where there are numerous choices.  There is running commentary in a range of languages as you stop at all the major attractions in your chosen city, from historic Inverness Castle in the north, to Glasgow’s trendy West End.  Prices start at around $20 for an adult.
