Small but spectacular, Scotland offers bucket-list experiences in abundance.
Whether you want to explore the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle, adventure through breathtaking Highland landscapes or sample the finest local produce washed down by ancient malts, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Scotland has to offer.
Famed for its majestic mountains, desolate moorlands and shimmering lochs, Scotland's remote and wild regions are an absolute joy for outdoor enthusiasts seeking an escape from city life. Scotland's urban centres have a lot to offer too, from cutting-edge art galleries and world-class museums to a flourishing food scene and a scintillating roster of cultural events, comedy and theatre.
Our updated guide brings Scotland to life, transporting you there like no other travel guide does with expert-led insights, trusted travel advice, detailed breakdowns of all the must-see sights, photographs on practically every page, and our hand-drawn illustrations which place you inside the country's iconic buildings and neighbourhoods. We've also worked hard to make sure our information is as up-to-date as possible following the COVID-19 outbreak.
