Why book early?

There are plenty of reasons for this. The first and most important of reasons is that tourism in Scotland is booming again. A lot of people have put their plans on hold since 2020. People have retired, saved their money and one thing they want to do is get back to travelling again now that it is safe to do so. Everyone has sacrificed enough for the last few years, it’s time to treat ourselves again and get things back to normal. At this point we have 2- 3 years of people who had put things on hold, who all want to get to Scotland, now! You can see what this will do to availability. Book early or unfortunately you may miss out.

The earlier you book the more deals there are to be had, from early bird bookings to discounts on hotels and getting cheaper deals on the flights. The savvy traveller books early to get the best value on their vacation.

Book early for peace of mind that everything is booked and confirmed, and you can channel your energy elsewhere in the full knowledge that you have a fantastic vacation is taken care of.  Now you have something to look forward to and a box on your busy to do list has been ticked off.

Isle of Skye

No trip to Scotland is complete without a visit to the Isle of Skye. Like Scotland in miniature, every corner your turn the more the scenery will impress you. It really is as amazing a place as everyone says it is and is a must see when you come to Scotland. From fairy glen to the view from the Quiraing, Skye is spectacular.



Glencoe is steeped in history and mythology from Scotland’s past. In recent years it has been used as the backdrop for many a film, such as James Bond and Harry Potter. Its scenic beauty is hard to match also, the hills and glens are sure to make a lasting impression and not only that it is teaming with wildlife like roe deer and if you are very lucky it is even possible to catch a glimpse of golden eagles.

The site of the last land battle to be fought in Scotland. Many who have visited the battlefield do feel that the site of the ill-fated Jacobite rebellion against British rule has a very particular atmosphere, especially when visited early in the morning away from the crowds. Not just a site to visit for the history buffs but fans of the hit TV show Outlander are always very keen to come and see the site of the battle that is pivotal in the program and also in Scotland’s history.

So, there are the reasons why you should book now!
