Avis Prestige has put together a quick guide of the top cities to visit in Scotland on your next vacation.
There are plenty of reasons to visit one of the world’s most popular cities. From festivals, such as the Fringe, to beautiful hotels, amazing food, history and art, this city really has it all. One of the UK’s most iconic attractions is Edinburgh Castle and we agree, it’s worthy of the attention! The National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Royal Botanic Gardens are among our top spots to visit. Read our Edinburgh Travel Guide to find out more.
Located on the River Clyde, Glasgow has been transformed from a bustling industrial city to the country’s cultural capital, with excellent museums, galleries, concert venues, and festivals. The most historically significant building is the 12th century Glasgow Cathedral. From here venture to the heart of the historic Victorian city centre and enjoy time at George Square. This part of the city’s trendy Merchant City district offers unique cafes, restaurants and designer boutiques. As Glasgow is so centrally located in Scotland there are plenty of historic attractions, castles, lochs and more to visit only a short car trip away. Less than an hour drive away from Glasgow city centre you can enjoy the charming coastal town of Troon for a day out at the beach!
Situated in the Scottish Highlands, Inverness is surrounded by breathtaking beauty and rich history, making it the ideal place to start off on our recommended Scottish Highland road trip. Inverness is the perfect place to uncover one of Scotland’s most tumultuous periods of history – the Jacobite Risings. See where the last battle on British soil played out at Culloden, or visit Fort George - an impressive 18th-century military garrison.
With so much to see and do across Aberdeenshire, hiring a car is a great way to make the most of your trip. Drive around the coastline, and stop to visit historic fishing villages, white sandy beaches and even watch for dolphins! Take advantage of the great sand dunes and enjoy a game of golf at some of the world’s most challenging courses. The panoramic views can take a golfer’s breath away. Hire one of our premium luxury SUVs for your Scottish golfing vacation with enough space to fit your clubs, luggage, friends and family.
