Dundee is currently undergoing a cultural renaissance that has seen the city of Jute, Jam and Journalism entirely transformed. Recommended by Lonely Planet as one of 2018’s top places to visit, it’s undoubtedly Scotland’s destination of the moment.
The jewel in the crown of modern Dundee is the brand-new V&A Museum. Designed by Kengo Kuma to salute the brilliance of Scottish creativity, the Dundee museum is the sister venue to the V&A in London and forms the centrepiece of a £1billion waterfront generation.
With other attractions including Verdant Works and RMS Discovery, plus a healthy retail scene and new restaurants, bars and hotels popping up almost weekly, Dundee is the perfect location for your next Scottish city break.
Nestled at the midway point between Aberdeen and Inverness, Elgin is one of Scotland’s prettiest large towns, dominated by the dramatic ruin of the ancient cathedral as well as plenty of impressive Victorian architecture.
If it’s a spot of shopping you’re after, then you’ll find some of the world’s finest cashmere clothing and accessories at Johnston’s of Elgin, alongside a museum that celebrates the company’s 220-year history and reputation for innovation and craftsmanship.
With 3 distilleries in the area, lovers of a dram will have a field day in Elgin. The Glen Moray Single Malt distillery and visitor centre is the perfect place to start, followed by the BenRiach distillery just outside town.
Some say the journey is as important as the destination and that’s never truer than when you travel the West Highland Line. Possibly the world’s most scenic railway trip the route gets even more stunning when bathed in Autumn colours.
When you arrive in Fort William, the UK’s outdoor capital, you won’t be short on things to do even with the colder weather kicking in. A gondola ride to the mountain restaurant on Nevis Range really is something special, especially in late afternoon as the sun is setting.
Back in town, you’ll come across fine dining at Blas and incredible shellfish at Crannog. As one of the main hubs of The Highlands, Fort William is also brimming with quality hotels and B&Bs.
The most northerly town on the British mainland, a trip to Thurso is a true adventure. As you head there on the scenic Far North Line you’ll see how wild Scotland can be as the train hugs sea cliffs and crosses the dense bogs of the Flow Country.
When you arrive don’t miss The Captain’s Galley, the award-winning seafood restaurant in the nearby port of Scrabster. It’s just a 5-minute taxi ride or a brisk walk along the waterfront and serves up sustainable and creative dishes fresh from the fishing boats.
If you want to extend your adventure even further north, then John O’ Groats is easily accessible by bus, or you can catch a ferry to Orkney from Scrabster.
