Travelling Tips

Wanneer gaan ?


Schotland kan je het jaar door bezoeken met zijn natuurlijke attracties, evenementen en festivals.


Het hoofdseizoen loopt van Pasen tot oktober.

Tussen oktober en Pasen sluiten vele bezichtigingen (zoals historische huizen) of passen kortere bezoekuren toe.


Het weer kan onvoorspelbaar zijn, maar is in tegenstelling tot wat sommigen beweren, niet dramatisch.

Voor hoe lang ?

Schotland lijkt klein op de kaart, maar dat kan bedrieglijk zijn.


Het land is maar 440 km lang, maar heeft 10.000 km kustlijn en 767 eilanden van belang.


Hou je van steden of de wijde natuur, dan heeft Schotland het allemaal voor je.


Dus, blijf zo lang je zelf wil en kom gerust terug voor meer

“There are two seasons in Scotland: June and winter.” 

Billy Connolly

When to go

Scotland is a year round destination

with continuous natural attractions, events and festivals.


The main season goes from Easter until October.

Between November and Easter many sights (i.e. historic houses) close their doors or apply reduced opening hours.


The weather can be unpredictable but certainly not as dramatic as some people think it is.

How Long ?

Scotland looks small on the map but that can be deceptive.


It is only 275 miles long but has 6,200 miles of coastline and 767 major islands


If you love cities or the great outdoors, Scotland has it all for you.


So stay as long as you like and come back for more
