About Craig Neil

Hello, and welcome to Out About Scotland, the independent guide to the best things to do in Scotland.

I’m Craig Neil, I’m a travel writer from Edinburgh, and I’ve spent over 20 years touring around Scotland to visit the country’s top attractions.

I started outaboutscotland.com after getting fed up with searching for things to do in each region of Scotland and becoming overwhelmed by the huge amount of information that’s online.

A search for Scottish attractions brings up a dozen or more results, and trying to choose one means you have to trawl through a ton of websites to find the location, opening times, and trusted reviews of what each place is actually like.

There are a few sites out there that offer suggestions for things to do in Scotland but most of them forget to mention the must-know details – are there toilets? is there a car park? what else is in the area? – so I figured I could do better myself.

Due to the fact I’ve travelled so much around the country I can show you the top places to visit, including all the wee hidden-away gems that are off the standard tourist trails as well as the more famous sites that are probably already on your ‘must-do’ list.

In the main menu, you’ll find attractions in Scotland listed by region along with interactive maps that will help you see where each one is located.

There are also links to articles about Scotland covering topics such as General Information, Places to Visit and Travel tips and Advice.

And to give you the best view of what Scotland’s attractions are actually like, you’ll find a 360° virtual tour or a YouTube video on most pages.

If you have any suggestions for the website or you’d like to contact me for marketing purposes please get in touch and I’ll be sure to respond as quickly as possible.

P.s. If you’re a tourist attraction operator and you’d like a professional 360° virtual tour of your attraction to display in Google Maps, take a look at my commercial virtual tours website: Vartour.com.
