Scientific Tourism in Scotland

A WONDER SEEKERS trip will enthuse and inspire you to learn about the real Scotland: its rugged coastline, towering mountains and Gaelic and Celtic connections. 

Our immersive travel adventures will take you beyond the superficial for a unique, immersive experience. From encounters with eagles to island hopping, majestic castles to humble bothies, the magic of Scotland will spark and satisfy your curiosity. And at the end of the day you can retire to enjoy a wee dram from one of the world-renowned artisan distilleries. 

WONDER SEEKERS experiences are founded on the principles of sustainable travel and eco-tourism. We encourage all visitors to take Scotland's Responsible Tourism Promise

Scottish Highlands

A mountainous region, with Loch Ness at its centre, in the Highlands you can enjoy many different cultural, scientific and environmental experiences. For nature lovers, there are red deer, eagles and dolphins to spot on one of the many stunning inland or coastal routes. Science is bought to life in the Cairngorms Dark Sky Park, and the two Geoparks offer pebble routes, rock routes and geotrails where you can discover some of Europe’s oldest rocks. Visit romantic botanic gardens, folk museums and castles, or discover darker tales from the legendary battlefields.

Scottish Islands

Scotland has over 790 islands, 95 of which are inhabited. Each has a unique personality, from the small historic towns of the Orkney Isles to the unpopulated Handa which is a haven for wild birds. Use one of the many boat services to experience the voyages and adventure of island hopping.

The North

The north of Scotland tends to be remote, with small coastal towns and villages. Explore the single track roads to experience the mountains, lochs, forests and glens of the Trossachs, Scotland’s first national park.

Central Lowlands

The densely populated central belt is home to the major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Edinburgh boasts the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, Medieval Old Town, and the headquarters of the Scottish Government. Glasgow is a city of culture with groundbreaking museums and galleries, the interactive Science Centre, and several works by pioneering Glaswegian architect, designer and artist, Charles Rennie Macintosh.

Scottish Borders

In the south of Scotland lie the Scottish Borders (in the east) and Dumfries and Galloway (in the west). This sparsely populated area is mainly farming land and features rolling hills, scenic villages, castles and abbeys.
