August 5, 2021

Whether to discover world-class country sports, jaw dropping scenery, or hospitality fit for a king, the remote regions of Scotland offer a travel experience that enriches on every level.

Much of the country’s appeal for the discerning traveller lies in the raw beauty of the Highlands and northern regions, where underpopulated landscapes offering one of Europe’s best opportunities to escape the crowds.

Here are just a handful of reasons to make your Scottish escape, Flexjet style.

 

Country pursuits & landscapes

If you’re looking for outdoor sporting experiences with stunning and dramatic vistas, Scotland has you covered in every way. From game shooting, to wildfowling, deer stalking and world class salmon fishing, some of the world’s most memorable outdoor experiences are to be found here.

Or simply escape into the wilderness with a guide and hike, climb or paint – discovering the natural wonders of Scotland’s many lochs, mountains, valleys and island coastlines.

 

A wealth of golf courses

Then there’s the golf. With more golf courses per head of population than anywhere else in the world, a dizzying choice awaits, set amongst the iconic Scottish landscape, including many of the world’s most prized links courses.

The most renowned and historic include Royal Dornoch; The Old Course at St Andrews; Royal Troon; Turnberry and Gleneagles – to name just a few.

 

Whisky tasting & distilleries

For whisky connoisseurs, Scotland’s natural peat soil and maritime climate mean there is no better place on earth to taste and enjoy a single malt, with over 47 distilleries in the Highlands and Islands alone and a diverse range of styles and flavours.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a wee dram and soak up the rich and individual history with an exclusive tasting or distillery tour.

 

Historic houses & castles

There are many exceptional places to stay in Scotland including world-class spas and resorts. However, nothing quite compares to a property steeped in the country’s rich history and local hospitality.

Enjoy the royal treatment in a converted castle, historic lodge or boutique country house hotel. There are many offering 5-star, luxuriously-appointed accommodation, with the finest, award-winning local cuisine, interiors and service.

One is our Flexjet partner hotel, The Fife Arms in Braemar, close to Balmoral and famous for the annual Highland Games. Built as a Victorian coaching inn in the 19th century, the hotel has been painstakingly restored and rewoven by its current owners, Iwan and Manuela Wirth, co-Presidents of the international gallery Hauser & Wirth.

Inspired by a deep sense of place, the colourful stories of Braemar, and the dramatic landscape of the Cairngorms, it offers uniquely furnished rooms, an outstanding Scottish art collection and craftsmanship on a truly exceptional level.

 

Fly in Flexjet style

While the main hubs of Glasgow and Edinburgh are Scotland’s busiest airports, the remote Highlands and northern regions are more easily accessed via Inverness or Aberdeen, with further smaller domestic airport options at Oban, Dundee and Perth.

Unwind and start your Scottish escape from the moment you step onboard our Flexjet European fleet, including the midsize Legacy 500 and super-midsize Praetor 600.
