    Scotland Art, Architecture & Culture Tours

    Welcome to Scotland, a country richly endowed with as long cultural and artistic culture.

    Tell me more about tours focused on or incorporating aspects of Scottish art, architecture and culture. 

    Scotland has a long and proud connection with the arts, culture and learning with manifestations particularly prominent during the 18th century Enlightenment

    Below is a summary of components within this heading with which visitors can connect:

    • Language: Whilst English is the dominant language, there is a distinct Scots dialect coupled with regional accents. On the west of Scotland, islands and Highlands, the ancient Gaelic language still survives, particularly on the Isle of Lewis.
    • Art: Many communities contain artists with various skills. In Glasgow the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum  is one of the top rated such establishments in Europe whilst in Edinburgh can be found the Scottish National Gallery.
    • Dance: There are two main categories of traditional dance, Highland Dancing  and Scottish Country Dancing.
    • Food & Drink: The Scottish gastronomic offering continues to improve with examples such as the highly rated Three Chimneys on Skye.
    • Harris Tweed Manufacture: Currently undergoing a resurgence on the Western Isles. Visits to individual weavers  can be arranged.
    • Kilts and other traditional attire: Can be rented to enable visitors to connect with this historic and emblematic form of dress.
    • Music: In Dunkeld, on Skye and in other centres genuine traditional Scottish music continues in the local communities, usually in pubs. Music is also played at Ceilidhs, traditional community dances.
    • Whisky: Probably Scotland’s best known drink which is produced in about ninety five working distilleries, many of which provide tours for visitors. There are also specialist bars catering for this product.
    • Clans: Visitors may wish to connect with a particular Scottish Clan such as MacDonalds Campbell, MacGregor, Armstrong, etc.
    • Architecture: In Glasgow can be found many examples of work by Charles Rennie Mackintosh  and Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. Edinburgh is renowned for its medieval buildings and the Georgian era, New Town.
    • Literature: Robert Burns  is Scotland’s National Poet, whilst Sir Walter Scott was a famous author of historical novels whose mansion, Abbotsford House, is now a visitor attraction. 

    The above listing does not purport to be exhaustive but illustrations of themes which can be woven into-or made key driver of- tour itineraries.
