Quite rightly proud of its heritage, Scotland is stuffed to the gills with castles, grand houses, ancient sites and stunning villages, all set against a backdrop of spectacular and varied scenery; mountains, lochs, moors and beautiful coastline. The scenery affords sporting enthusiasts plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy it with the likes of with horse-riding, trekking, fabulous fishing and glorious bike rides, but there are lots of rainy-day options all around Scotland as well.
