Where to go in Scotland: Explore Edinburgh, Fort William, and the Isle of Skye

Scotland lends itself to everyone – fans of history, adventurers, film enthusiasts, and admirers of art. Rich art collections and historic places await in the large cities, and striking landscapes surround you. See why some of the most popular films ever made were shot here.

  1. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland This city, featuring Gothic architecture, is one of the world's top festival destinations. Walk along the Royal Mile, the main street, to Edinburgh Castle, perched atop a high hill and offering views of the city and nearby bay. Nearby attractions include the Museum of Edinburgh, displaying exhibits on archaeology, decorative arts, and war, and Camera Obscura, a viewpoint and house of illusions.
  2. Glasgow, the cultural hub of Scotland The country’s largest city boasts Art Nouveau and Victorian architecture. Admission-free Riverside Museum exhibits old locomotives, carriages, and other means of transport, while Kelvingrove Art Gallery displays everything from Bronze Age tools to a 20th-century fighting aeroplane.
  3. Ben Nevis To conquer Great Britain's highest mountain, consider booking a holiday cottage in Fort William, a town in the Scottish Highlands some 160km north of Glasgow. Go mountain biking and take a nostalgic train ride over the Glenfinnan Viaduct. While travelling over the 21-arch bridge featured in Harry Potter films, admire the groves and hilly landscape.
  4. Glen Nevis This neighbour of Ben Nevis is the site of Steall Falls, another Harry Potter filming location. The high waterfall, plummeting from a snow-capped mountain, is where Harry confronted a Hungarian Horntail dragon. Go to The Elephant House Café in Edinburgh, near the Royal Mile, to see where JK Rowling penned some of Harry Potter's adventures.
  5. Isle of Skye (Cloud Island) Here, you'll believe you've wandered into some legendary land. Discover colourful cliffs, rugged mountains, and misty waterfalls while admiring the Scottish Highlands from numerous viewpoints, and marvel at the pastel sky overhead emitting light from everywhere and nowhere.
