Student Trips to Scotland

Often overlooked compared to more cosmopolitan destinations, Scotland is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to providing beautiful scenery, fantastic cities and an amazingly friendly atmosphere for all visitors. There’s many cliched images that might spring to mind for Scotland, with tartan kilts, shortbread and haggis on the list, but there’s so much more to this small yet mighty country than you could imagine.

The cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh offer stunning architecture, and an art scene that rivals many of Europe’s most glamorous cities. The historic buildings will provide students with an abundance of artistic inspiration, and many hours can be lost just wandering around the array of art galleries and museums in both cities.

Outside of the bustling cities, the landscape of the Scottish countryside is as picturesque as they come. Home to rolling hills as far as the eye can see, famously luminous Lochs and captivating castles, the scenery is so easy on the eye it will leave you wanting to stay forever.

The Scottish dining scene is the envy of many. Previously known for the aforementioned haggis and love of fried food, Scotland has shaken off this image and is now a food-lover’s dream destination. Thanks to the Atlantic being on its doorstep, Scotland offers food of exceptional quality; from Aberdeen Angus beef and Scottish smoked salmon to world-class whisky and exquisite seafood, there’s sure to be something to satisfy any craving.

So, if you’re looking for a great value study trip that’s practically on your doorstep, head to Scotland for a memorable educational trip.
