The Easiest Way to See The Best of Scotland?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s cheaper than ever for inbound tourists to visit Scotland from overseas. It’s a small country, but there’s so much to see and do; how do you ensure that you make the absolute most of the time you have and see everything you had ever dreamed of when choosing Scotland as your destination? More and more people choosing to have a completely bespoke tour package created for them that caters specifically to their interests and must-see list. Little’s Luxury Tour Designers are on hand 24/7 to assist with planning dream holidays in Scotland. Below are the top tips they have for people interested in touring Scotland in luxury.

1. Consider why you want to tour Scotland

When asked why they want to visit Scotland, many people say “to see the countryside” or “to tour a whisky distillery”. While both of these answers give a general idea of where to start planning, they leave a lot of room for interpretation. For example, “countryside” in Scotland could mean a trip to the coast, or a drive through scenic mountains. Little’s Tour Designers recommend reflecting on what, exactly, pulls you to Scotland. Is it to trace your family heritage, visit film and TV locations, or to get back in touch with nature? Let them know, and then they can begin to plan a trip for you around your specific interests.

2. “Off peak” shouldn’t be off-putting

Many people want to visit Scotland in the summer months when the days are longer and the weather is warmer. However, this means popular attractions such as the Isle of Skye and Edinburgh Castle may be extremely busy, with long wait times and higher prices. To avoid the crowds, it would be better to plan a luxury trip to Scotland in early spring or late autumn when the weather is a bit cooler and the masses have gone. Touring in a Little’s luxury chauffeur driven car will ensure comfort every step of the trip.

3. Attend a local event

While the Highland Games are well-known worldwide, have you ever heard of Up Helly Aa? How about Burns Night? Attending a local event is a great way to see the country in a way few tourists do and will give a unique perspective on the country.
