Finn’s Giants Causeway stretching out towards the horizon and Scotland’s Isle of Staffa. Benandonner is giant even for a giant! Finn quickly returns to Ireland via his Giant Causeway and decides the best way to beat Benandonner is to con him. Realising that if Finn’s child was this big, Finn himself must be huge! Welcome to Fingal’s Cave on the Isle of Staffa.

The Scottish giant Benandonnar hurries away, retreating back to Scotland with his tail between his legs. Incidentally, Fingal’s Cave shares a similar geology and appearance to the Giant’s Causeway! Thus, the myth of the Giant’s Causeway was born. It’s a nice story, isn’t it? The burning and quick cooling of the volcanic lava left a series of impressive 40,000 interconnected basalt columns hugging the northern Irish coastline forming the Giant’s Causeway, one of Ireland’s most iconic and impressive landscapes, as well as basalt columns of the tiny Scottish Isle of Staffa, remote an uninhabited but for birdlife. Whichever story you prefer, well, the Giant’s Causeway is a place that you have to see to truly believe. So what are you waiting for?

Enter the characters you see below Sorry, we just need to make sure you’re not a robot. Take the sleeper train from London and you wake up to everything that Scotland holidays have to offer. Deserted mountains glistening with silvery threads of icy rivers, waterfalls tumbling from highlands to lowlands, small villages with stations where you need to put your hand out to request the train to stop and suddenly, out of nowhere, a gleaming great loch. You have to wipe the sleep from your eyes to believe it.

Take the sleeper train from London and you wake up to everything that a Scotland holiday has to offer. Cairngorms that are less than a three-hour train journey away from Edinburgh. Cairngorms National Park With Aviemore at its core, it’s already known as a skiing centre. But with mountain biking, canoeing, climbing, white water rafting and gorge walking also on offer, plus some eco chic yoga, the Cairngorms have a cool thing going down. Caledonian Canal Created by those genius Victorians so that ships could traverse the country instead of tackling its treacherous tip. This aquatic artery which cuts straight through the glens from Corpach in the west to Inverness in the east, is now a trail of outdoorsiness. Cruise it, canoe it, cycle it or hike it or do a bit of all four.

Fort William Sitting at the head of Loch Linnhe, and the foot of Ben Nevis, this is the hub for hikers, bikers and all round outsiders. It is also where many journeys on the historic Caledonian Sleeper Train, which transports you overnight from London to luscious lochs and wild moors, come to an end. Isle of Iona A small island off an island. Iona is a spiritual place for many. Known also as the Isle of Colm Cille, after the Irish priest who first founded a monastery here in the 6th century. Go for the Abbey alone, built on the site of the original and run as a residential centre with daily worship.

Isle of Mull From the candy coloured sea front terrace in Tobermory, to the prolific arts centre, Comar, this is a vibrant island. However, for natural as well as cultural exhilaration, nothing beats watching whales in the wild, with puffins, golden and white tailed eagles thrown into the magical mix of Mull. Harris Although often considered separate, this is one island, the northern half being Lewis and the southern half Harris. It is part of the Outer Hebrides, with Harris totally mountainous and Lewis contrastingly flat. Lewis also has the main town of Stornoway, and Harris the world famous eponymous tweed. Both have stunning beaches and wildlife. Read our top Scotland travel guides Our collection of in-depth, honest travel guides delves a little deeper into some of our favourite bits of Scotland.
