Flights to Scotland

Book flights to Scotland for a getaway that has it all.

Things to look out for in Scotland

The rest of the world may joke about haggis, deep fried pizza, and luminous soft drink Irn Bru but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Scotland boasts amazing local produce: be sure to sample the juicy soft fruits, sharp cheddars, and decadent smoked salmon.

If you’re flying to Scotland in August, you may end up sitting beside a famous comedian. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival draws comics from across the globe, and sees the population of Scotland’s capital double. Catch a free show on preview night and settle in the Speigeltent garden with a pint of something tasty.

It’s often the second city that has the best nightlife.  You’ll be sure to fall in love with Glasgow and its friendly locals: whether you’re luxuriating in a wine bar in the posh Merchant City, sipping cocktails from a pitcher in achingly trendy Ashton Lane, or drinking from a plastic pint glass in a noisy music venue.

But there’s more to Scottish city life than Edinburgh and Glasgow. For world class shopping head to Aberdeen; the center of Scotland’s oil industry. Get your photograph taken with Desperate Dan in Dundee, or discover historic university town St Andrews. Science fans can see where Dolly the sheep was cloned, near the famous Roslyn chapel, whilst the bookish among us may prefer a visit to Rabbie Burns’s cottage.

You can’t book flights to Scotland without planning a trip to the Highlands. The images from postcards are much better in real life: from the mist rising over Glen Coe, the mystery of Loch Ness, to the stunning Eilean Donan Castle.

Getting around Scotland

There are plenty of airport options for flights to Scotland, but Scotland’s four main airports are Edinburgh, Glasgow, Glasgow Prestwick, and Aberdeen. Each city has its own bus service which will get you around town quickly and cheaply. Glasgow also has an underground metro system, perfect for getting to the SECC venue. You can travel between cities by bus (the cheapest option) or by train. If you’re planning on visiting the Highlands consider renting a car, as the area is remote.

What to bring on a holiday to Scotland

If you’re taking flights to Scotland, be prepared for surprising weather. The time of year doesn’t matter: make sure you have a good selection of clothing. Waterproofs, thermals, and something light in case of sunshine could all be needed over the course of a weekend.
