Last minute Scotland

If you consider yourself a nature enthusiast, then Scotland should definitely be on your must-visit list! And if you are feeling spontaneous, take a look at our last-minute deals for a trip to Scotland. You don’t have to do a lot of preparation; just pack your bags, read our recommendations and head to a last-minute adventure.

The nature of Scotland

The Scottish nation will enchant you with its stories, but more importantly they will also teach you how to honor and preserve nature in terms of both flora and fauna – a very important aspect of their culture and customs. Whether you wish to wake up on top of a hill with a panoramic view of evergreen valleys and meadows, or you wish to be immersed in thick forestation away from any human contact and into the wild Scottish nature, we are hopeful that you will find your perfect match among our suggestions.

Along this country’s territory, there are two national parks and a few geoparks. Cairngorms National Park covers most of the eastern highlands in the UK and is a rather mountainous territory. The Cairngorms National Park is the place where you can really get away from the world. This is a territory where nature has done its best to turn this place into a wildlife heaven. There are mountains, dense forests with fairytale-like forest paths, rivers, lakes (or as the locals call them – lochs), small villages in between wild meadows and numerous distilleries. The park is also home to some of the rarest plants and animals found in the UK.

Another interesting place to visit is the North-West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark - the first geopark in Scotland, located in the far north territory of the Scottish Highlands. Essentially being a coastal area, it also includes mountains, beach forests and a few villages along the coast. It was recognized by UNESCO as one of the most unique places in the world and historians believe that the seashore is at least 3 billion years old. The coast is made of steep hills of hundreds of meters in height, there are thousands of caves in them, and the beaches are enchanting.

Activities

Everybody knows that Aurora Borealis is most clear in the Nordic countries. However, Scotland is among the best places to see the natural phenomenon, too. In fact, the country is home to the second Dark Sky Park in Europe and the first in the UK. It is worth the visit, especially if you are in the region around Glasgow.

Loch Ness is among the most famous symbols of the country; take the Loch Ness 360 trail and you will have the chance to explore the loch by bike or by foot. And while Loch Ness might not be the best place to go fishing, this sport is highly respected along the Scottish latitudes and there are hundreds if not more places suitable for fishing enthusiasts.
