The Cairngorms are ridiculously close, and offer pretty much any outdoor activity you can imagine (climbing, canoeing or kayaking), and a few you can't (buggy riding, anyone?).All that clean air and fresh mountain water is perfect for something else - uisge beatha.

It's no surprise really, given the Duncan of Jordanstone College is acknowledged as one of the UK's leading art and design schools, right up there with St Martins and Glasgow School of Art. Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) is where the cool people meet after hours.
It's also slap in the middle of Dundee's cultural quarter, where cool bars, galleries and creative businesses huddle together. But Dundee isn't all design and cocktails. It's got a rich maritime past, thanks to five centuries of trading. Whalers used to sail from Dundee, and it was these whalers who rescued Scott's ship, Discovery. Built in Dundee, the ship has returned home as part of an impressive exhibition.

Find coach tours to Edinburgh and get the best deals on coach trips to Edinburgh from departure points across the UK. Think of an Edinburgh festival. Double it. Add four. You were thinking of the Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe, weren't you? But the ridiculous thing is that Edinburgh has got something going on pretty much every day of the year, not just three weeks in August. Books, science, art, you name it, there's an event for you.
All that culture can leave one in need of refreshment. Fret not; Edinburgh will look after you. And amazingly, you can eat while taking in the sights. The Forth Floor restaurant in Harvey Nichols offers views down to the Forth bridges. The Tower Restaurant at the Museum of Scotland has attracted epicureans and cognoscenti in equal measure, to food matched only by the views of the castle. And Oloroso's roof terrace is the place to be seen in the New Town. Want to retreat underground? Edinburgh's basement bars take you away from it all. Beluga, The Basement Bar and Rick's Bar will soothe your soul.
These days, Glasgow promotes itself as 'Scotland with Style'. And it's got a point, you know. For the last two decades, the city has carved out a reputation for architecture and design, fuelled by a ridiculously well-dressed (and notoriously friendly) population. So you'd be right to expect incredible shops, earning Glasgow its reputation as the UK's favourite shopping city outside London.
Ralph Lauren, Armani and Boss are within minutes of each other. Need we go on? Then what about an array of desirable labels in the designer mall of Princes Square. Want to show off those togs and get friendly with the Glaswegians? Glasgow's club scene is one of the most vibrant in the UK, offering a mix of big names and local talent. The Tunnel and Sub Club still rule for cutting edge sounds but don't ignore venues like The Arches and Liquid Lounge.

Go north. Keep going. A little bit more! When you get to Inverness, the shock is that a city could exist nestled amongst the spectacular countryside. It's not known as the 'city in the Highlands' for nothing. From guided mountain climbs to walking, quad biking to husky racing, white water rafting to surfing (really), it's all here.
You can even watch dolphins from a chartered or scheduled boat in the Moray Firth. So pack the binoculars. Of course, you might just want to do some walking at your own pace and maybe 'bag yourself a Munro' in Ben Wyvis. The city takes its name from the River Ness, which flows from the world famous loch. Hire a motor-cruiser and see the area in a whole new light, including the dramatic ruins of Urquhart Castle. Or simply hop on a guided cruise and let the views roll by.

We offer a range of coach holidays and trips to Inverness from short breaks to lengthier stays as well as coach tours that take in a wide range of destinations.
Forget about Australians with blue and white face paint. The real story of William Wallace is far more gripping than any Hollywood melodrama. And much of the action took place right here in Stirling, some 700 years ago. The most obvious landmark is the Wallace monument, its imposing Gothic form standing at 220 feet, deep in the heart of a forest. It commemorates the life of Scotland's most famous warrior, who masterminded the defeat of King Edward's army at Stirling Bridge. However, just a year later Wallace's army was defeated and he suffered a gruesome public execution in London.
In fact, the monument is slap in the middle of the Stirling countryside, which itself is part of Scotland's first National Park. The Ochils are required treading for walkers and mountain bikers, as is the expansive Queen Elizabeth Forest park. More adventurous? White water rafting at will propel you down the rapids at Dunkeld and there's a huge choice of climbs for mountaineering nuts.
Dunoon lies on the west shore of the Firth of Clyde where it turns south towards Bute and Arran after flowing through the Glasgow conurbation. It is located on the east side of the mountainous Cowal Peninsula and is more easily accessible by sea than by land. This gives it a very attractive "island" feel.
Dunoon is the largest town in Argyll and is built around two bays, East Bay and West Bay (aligned, confusingly, north and south of the centre of the town). Between them is a hilly nose of land sticking out into the estuary. This was the site of Dunoon Castle, once a major stronghold and originally built some time around 1050. It had been abandoned by 1650 and today nothing remains beyond a few grassy lumps on top of the hill that provides such an excellent viewpoint over the town and the Firth of Clyde. Below the top of the hill and overlooking the Clyde is a statue erected in 1896 of "Highland Mary": Mary Campbell, who was romantically linked to Robert Burns.
