Edinburgh Castle,
Highlands & Harry Potter

The Scottish metropolis welcomes its visitors with a fascinating atmosphere of tradition and modernity - Romans, Vikings and clans have lived here. Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe and the centre of culture, architecture and history - the ideal starting point for a walk on the West Highland Way.

We recommend a trip to Scotland for anyone who already knows London and the South of England. The Scots speak a strong dialect that you quickly get used to. A study trip to Stirling, Edinburgh or Perth should be planned with students from Year 9.
