The City of Glasgow is a city full of culture and interest, as well as some of the most elaborate advances in architectural history.

The City of Edinburgh is a World Heritage Site, and the first to be declared as a UNESCO City for literature!

The Royal Mile of Edinburgh might ring a bell - English writer of the 17th century, Daniel Defoe, famously described it as the "Finest Street in the World"

Its dramatic setting makes Princes street one of the most famous shopping streets in Europe - with one of the oldest department stores.

The 650-acre Royal Park of Holyrood is home to Arthur's Seat (823 ft) an extinct volcano overlooking Edinburgh

Mary King's Close of Edinburgh was walled up after the poor inhabitants caught the plague. It still exists, as it was in the 17th century

Stirling Castle - one of the most formidable and important castles in Scottish history. The oldest sections of the castle date back to the 14th century

Cowal World Championships is the largest Highland games in the world - First held in 1894, the event is steeped in history and tradition.

Dunoon was formed by its history. Though the castle is long gone, the grand villas that were built in the 1820s and following decades continue to occupy the best spots on the shoreline's promenade.

The Game of Golf was born here in Scotland, and the variety, beauty, and originality of each course throughout the country reveals its story. Incorporate stunning courses into your golf lover's itinerary.

Oban is the gateway to the Hebridean islands. The Colosseum-like McCaig’s Tower overlooks Oban Bay. Seafood eateries cluster by the harbour. Explore the Clan MacDougall History, as well as the SeaLife Center.

Inveraray Castle on the West Coast of Scotland, is the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and the iconic, one of Scotland’s finest stately homes. 

The Scottish Cultural Center, Vancouver conducts events educating the public about Scottish culture throughout Metro Vancouver. Their events are open to all members of the public, in order to foster community.

Victoria Caledonian Distillery & Brewery is driven to craft outstanding beers, exceptional single malt whiskies & great visitor experiences. Bringing together the best people, natural ingredients, and equipment.

Clues of an Ancient History can be found throughout Scotland - echoes of a people and a past that has long since lost. Explore magical places such as the standing stones of the Hebrides or the brochs of the Shetlands.

Embrace the Right to Roam - Scotland becomes a hiker's haven, with challenging hills and breathtaking views.
