From lochs to tartans and all in between
A land of bonnie lasses and bagpipes, Scotland offers visitors a genuine taste of the classic imagery you may expect to find on postcards. Hills of heather and men in kilts really do exist, and are not muted by the mighty mountain scenery of the Highlands or the burgeoning arts and culture scene in Edinburgh. Castle ruins dot the landscape while sheep-herding pastures sweep out to sea, and thrill-seeking bikers are tackling tricky mountain passes while country pubs are filled to the brim with patrons discussing golf or debating the poetry of Robbie Burns while sipping the country's signature single malts.
Next stop: Edinburgh
Your stay at the Ten Hill Place Hotel will have you slumbering in the prime spot to get the most out of one of Scotland's most colourful cities. With Old Town and the city centre easily visited on foot, you'll be privy to all the wonderful contrasts and excitements Edinburgh is known for. It is also home to the world's most dynamic festival which spews fireworks across the rocky crags that house its medieval tenements and lively pubs. Explore the mansions of the Georgian new town, and the narrow medieval streets of the old. Browse for tartan and shortbread along the popular thoroughfare of Princes Street, and take an amble around the battlements of the unbelievable Edinburgh Castle.
"Freedom" is no understatement
Behind the wheel of your 7-day rental car, you'll have the Caledonian world at your disposal. Jet off towards the boisterous coast, careen alongside the lush, rolling hills of the Lowlands, or dilly-dally through glacier eroded glens, all at your own pace. Visit the stylish abodes of the ever-popular city of Glasgow, traipse through the stunning coastal serenity found in Aberdeen, or venture north towards the capital of the Scottish Highlands, Inverness. Most of Scotland's main metropolitan centers are within three hours driving distance, which means you can cover as much or as little of the country as you desire. With only three nights of accommodation, you also get free reign to stay wherever you like.
Stonefaced fortresses and mythic legends
From the sturdy stone facades of Edinburgh Castle, to the iconic island citadel of Eilean Donan Castle, to Stirling Castle, perched high on a plateau of volcanic rock, Scotland's countryside is dotted with castles of all sizes and ages. From the 11th Century and beyond, explore the precarious battlements of ancient military strongholds, where kings supped and courts made merry.
