School trips Scotland

Explore a nation's history

Ask anyone returning from their first visit to Scotland, and the word beautiful will never be far from their lips. A long and noble past, this country has a fascinating social history, sublime geography and geology, plus great resources for learning about science, physical education and art. Scotland has it all in abundance and offers the kind of school trips that would make teachers in most countries rub their hands together in glee.

How can you fail to inspire your school group with treasures such as the National Museum and Galleries, Edinburgh Castle, outstanding international wildlife reserves and Scotland's maritime legacy. If you are looking for an outdoor pursuits trip, our dedicated Activity Centres in Scotland page is worth a look!
