Posted on Posted in Activities

Whether you’re on a corporate retreat, hen party or an adventure holiday, there’s nothing quite as fun as the activities that Scotland is famous for.

At Absolutely Scotland, we love all things Scottish, so here are some of the traditional Scottish activities you could be enjoying if you come to stay with us in Scotland.



Where better to have a round of golf that in the sport’s spiritual home. Enjoy hitting a few balls in the stunning Scottish scenery as you relax and unwind. You don’t have to be a seasoned pro to enjoy some of the best golf courses in the world, and kilts are optional.

Highland Games

Have a go at the heavy athletic competitions that make up the Highland Games. Whether you’re tossing the caber, throwing the hammer or lifting the stone, you’re bound to have the time of your life taking part in this popular Scottish tradition.


Also known as the ‘sport of kings’, a course in falconry will offer you the experience of a lifetime. Get up close and personal with some extraordinary birds, and participate in one of the fastest growing sports in Britain. Don’t forget your camera!

Malt Whisky Tasting

There are whisky distilleries all over Scotland, with many welcoming visitors in for a tour and a taste of the good stuff. Enjoy a lively and amusing talk while you try some of the best whisky in the world and learn about how it’s made.


Scotland’s national game may be intimidating at first, but once you get into it you’ll soon be having the time of your life. Played March through October, it bears some similarities to field hockey and Irish hurling. If you want to get stuck into something truly Scottish, then a game of Shinty is definitely for you.

Highland Dancing

It can be hard to get your head (and feet) around, but one thing that is certain about Highland dancing is that it’s a lot of fun. Get the bagpipes playing and have your kilt at the ready as you try your best to keep up with everyone else.
