The Edinburgh Festivals, a collection of multiple large festivals covering the arts, music, books, comedy and more, are taking place between 5th and 28th of August.
Particular popular are the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a large comedy festivals spreading throughout the city, and the Edinburgh International Festival, one of the largest arts festivals in the world. The Edinburgh International Festival brings the global scene of the very best music, theatre, opera and dance to Scotland. Events take place in several venues big and small around the city. If you are already in Glasgow and an arts fan, jump on an express train ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh, which is only 45 minutes away. We recommend using public transport and avoiding car travel, as parking in Edinburgh during festival time is challenging.
Just north of Glasgow lies Loch Lomond, one of Scotland's most beautiful and iconic places.
Beyond Loch Lomond lie the Highlands, with its unique landscape of hills, mountains (called Ben), valleys (called Glenn), and lakes (called Loch).
Loch Lomond and the Highlands are a paradise for people enjoying the outdoors, either by walking, riding a bike or canoe, or by driving through them by car, bus, or train.
