Scotland will always be a popular destination for visitors because of the breathtaking scenery of the Highlands, the lively cities and plethora of historic castles and ruins.
Situated to the north of England, Scotland has several airports providing connections to visitors from around the world. Scotland flights arrive at various airports within the country. The three major airports, Edinburgh (EDI), Glasgow International (GLA) and Glasgow Prestwick (PIK) are the largest and busiest and see a large number of travellers each year, with many flights from the rest of the United Kingdom and Channel Islands as well as Europe and beyond.
Flights to Scotland and the beautiful Scottish Isles can arrive at Inverness Airport (INV), which is rightly known as the Gateway to the Highlands. From here it is possible to fly to the small airports at Sumbugh on the Shetland Isles, Kirkwall on Orkney and the Hebridean islands of Stornoway, Islay, Benbecula, Barra and Tiree.
The Scottish Islands have a beauty all their own and it's wonderful to be able to 'island-hop' and experience some of the Scottish hospitality for which they are famous.
Inverness also provides connections to London Gatwick (LGW), London Luton (LTN) and other airports in England and the Channel Islands as well as Europe.
If you enjoy golf then you can follow in the steps of the professionals and play a challenging round at any one of the famous links courses. Dundee (DND) is the closest airport to St Andrews, the 'Home of Golf' and the course at Carnoustie is just along the coast.
For those wishing to explore the Cairngorm Mountains further north, the best airport to fly to is Aberdeen (ABZ). The scenery here is wild and undulating and offers ample opportunity for hang-gliding and trekking. It's not far from the famous Whisky Trail either, so you could perhaps pay a visit to a distillery or two.
The west coast of Scotland and the Mull of Kintyre can be easily reached from Cambeltown Airport (CAL). You can fly from here to Belfast in Northern Island and there are internal flights to Glasgow, Colonsay and Islay
