Coach Holidays in Scotland
Why not holiday a little closer to home and enjoy a coach trip to discover parts of Scotland which you may not have visited before?
Living in Scotland we’re spoilt with places to visit, with superb scenery right on our doorstep and neighbouring islands waiting to be explored. Only a short hop across the water, the Isle of Bute offers breath-taking scenery to match the Highlands, and is a peaceful haven where you can enjoy its unspoilt beaches, varied landscapes of lush hills and rocky crags and see wildlife in its natural habitat.
A coach break to Loch Lomond is equally as idyllic and a great base from which to explore the Trossachs National Park, whilst for an alternative view of the magical Highlands landscape you can climb onboard The Jacobite steam train from Fort William for a ride to remember. As a native of Scotland you’ll no doubt have heard countless tales of Loch Ness monster. So why not discover this mystical lake for yourself and try to discover ‘Nessie’ on a coach break to Inverness and the Highlands?.
Meanwhile on a holiday to Melrose you can explore the Scottish Borders region whilst from the coastal town of Oban you can island-hop to Mull, Coll and Islay. Although Scotland may not be blessed with the best weather in the UK, there’s plenty to see and do in this fabulous country.

Sandwiched between the rivers Dee and Don, Aberdeen is a cosmopolitan city with so many sides to it that it warrants serious attention for a city coach break. Known as the ‘Granite City’, Aberdeen has a distinguishable appearance thanks to its stunning architecture, built from local granite torn from Rubislaw Quarry, which shimmers with a silver hue. With its wealth fuelled by the North Sea oil industry, the city is filled with impressive attractions and a vibrant shopping scene which complement its historic buildings perfectly.

Straddling the banks of Loch Linnhe and nestled at the foot of the UK’s tallest mountain peak, Ben Nevis, Fort William enjoys an idyllic setting with a wealth of scenery and wildlife that provides amazing panoramas in every direction.
It’s perhaps not surprising that the town is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts hoping to conquer the mountain, but you don’t have to scale the summit to take in the breathtaking vistas. You can enjoy the scenery from a different perspective on-board the Jacobite Steam Train, used in the Harry Potter films or hop on a boat cruise of the loch.

Oban has grown from a small quaint fishing village to a bustling harbour town and one of Scotland’s most visited coastal resorts.
The town itself lies in the basin of a crescent overlooked by its most famous landmark McCaig's Tower, a Colosseum-like folly built around 1900 as a monument to the McCaig family.
