Fabled for its castles, stone-cottage villages, literary landmarks, age-old ruins, and jaw-dropping scenery, Scotland does not disappoint. National Geographic Traveler: Scotland makes sure you experience the very best of this small country north of England, and lesser known sights as well. Beginning in the ancient capital of Edinburgh, solid, traditional, and dignified, you'll travel through the Scottish lowlands, including the tumbled Border country of Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott with its scattering of abbeys and fortified castles, to Scotland's other great city, lively Glasgow. Then it's on to the Highlands and the far-flung magical islands—Orkney and the Shetlands among them—that grace the untamed, indented coastline. All along the way, you'll revel in the wild backdrops of remote lochs, glens, and great mountain ranges, offering splendid opportunities to fish, camp, and simply get away from it all.


Experiential sidebars show you how to get to know the real Scotland and its people, including golfing (the sport was started here), salmon fishing, enjoying traditional ceilidhs, and sampling its singular food and drink (haggis, anyone?). Guided walks and drives include a spin through the Trossachs, famous for their scenery since Queen Victoria called them lovely in 1865; and a stroll along the lovely West Highland Way, ending at Ben Nevis, Scotland's highest mountain.

In the northern British Isles, thick wool pullovers known as guernseys kept fishermen warm and dry during long runs at sea. Villages came to be known for particular knitting patterns like this one, originally named for the Yorkshire port of Whitby. Whitby sailors also worked fishing seasons in the Scottish port of Peterhead, and the style is sometimes called Buchanhaven after Peterhead’s small local fishing village. This classic nautical sweater is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, using virgin wool raised and spun in Yorkshire.

Each year at the end of winter, Scottish red deer stags shed their impressive antlers to begin growing them anew in the spring. Highlanders traditionally collected them to use as handles for knives and walking sticks. A polished piece of red deer antler, collected in the Scottish Highlands, forms the handle of our walking stick. The shaft is made of chestnut, with a walnut cap. Red deer are indigenous in Scotland, with depictions found as far back as sixth-century stone carvings by the medieval Picts.
