Scotland Location
Explore Scotland and learn outside the classroom

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.

Looking for inspiring school trip ideas relating to Scotland's history or culture? There are treasures such as the National Museum and Galleries, Edinburgh Castle, outstanding international wildlife reserves, and sites dedicated to Scotland's maritime legacy.

Learning about geography or ecology in Scotland? Diverse ancient landscapes and protected areas of outstanding natural beauty allow students to study many national curriculum topics. All of these sites are perfect for either primary or secondary school trips, with tailor made learning resources designed to help with your class topics.

Looking for an outdoor pursuits trip in Scotland? With so much wide open space, the untamed Scottish countryside and ragged coastline is absolutely perfect for schools to experience outdoor adventure activities. Our dedicated Activity Centres in Scotland page is well worth a look!
