Delegates may wish to take time either before or after the congress to enjoy a little of this wonderful country. In only a couple of hours, you can lose yourself in the spectacular landscape of rural Scotland, with its soaring hills and deep, sparkling lochs.
The stunning landscape is rich in history. The many castles which shelter in the rolling border hills are reminders of struggles with English raiders. West coast and Highland ruins and settlements were once the seats of a thriving Celtic culture. The romantic appeal of this mythology is matched by the craggy splendour of historic glens, where once fierce battles were fought.
Most of this compelling beauty is easily accessible, with excellent rail links to the north and west and a network of quiet roads all over the country. There are castles, houses, museums and gardens all waiting to be explored!
Along Fife’s East Neuk and up to Aberdeen and beyond, a series of fishing ports, rocky cliffs and sheltered beaches offer the pleasures of the seaside. To the west is Glasgow, home to great art collections and museums, and towards the north are Perth and Inverness, a vibrant centre of Highland culture for generations. St Andrews, the home of golf, is just an hour’s drive from Edinburgh’s city centre.
So take time to discover Scotland – We can advise and assist with any booking should delegates wish to extend their stay
