Tour Scotland your way with a flexible Explorer pass:
When you tour with Visit Scotland's very flexible Historic Scotland Explorer Pass, there's plenty of time to enjoy Scotland's landscapes, lochs, coasts and mountains as well as its castles, abbeys, museums and prehistoric sites. Unlike some visitors passes that are only worthwhile if you commit yourself to a relentless trek from one landmark to another, the Historic Scotland Explorer Pass is good for a number of days within a longer period, giving you plenty of time for hill rambles, nature walks, loch fishing, golf and boating - all that good, outdoorsy stuff for which Scotland is best known.
So how does it work?:
You can buy a pass for:
- 3 days within a 5-day period
- 7 days within 14
- 10 days within 30
The pass provides for free entry to dozens of sites all over Scotland, its cities, its coasts, its highlands and islands. Visit
- Caerlaverock Castle near Dumfries
- Edinburgh Castle
- Arbroath Abbey
- Prehistoric Norse settlements in Shetland
- Orkney's impressive neolithic Maes Howe and Skara Brae
