The untamed wilderness becomes your backyard here, with hiking, mountain-biking, and rafting being just a few of the ways you can dive into it. Observe animals in their natural habitat with whale and dolphin watching off the coast of Mull. Then we drive to the highlands to see the adorable seals (30% of Europe's seal population lives in Scotland). Aside from wildlife, Scotland's traditional culture is distinct. Haggis and celebrated whiskies, whilst very much enjoyed, just skim the surface, and we urge to look further through architecture and arts. We visit the hilltop castles, impressive fortresses and valleys dipped in mist. Alongside all this natural beauty on offer are cities brimming with rich history and bustling contemporary local life. In Edinburgh, Scotland's capital aptly nicknamed "Athens of the North", we take in the history and the extensive art collections at the museums and in the evenings, sit for local brews at the lively, quintessential pubs.
