SCOTLAND’S BEST starts with essential TRIP-PLANNING information and an overview of key REGIONS and DESTINATIONS to help you decide where to go.

A hand-crafted ITINERARIES section then offers first-timers a good way to start exploring key cities and many of its regions.

The app also groups Scotland’s finest sights and attractions by INTEREST and ACTIVITY so no-one misses a highlight they'll love. So if it’s HISTORY or WHISKY you’re after; or you want to travel in LUXURY or with KIDS, you can be sure you'll get a good heads-up.

Other categories here include ART, CASTLES, GOLF, HIKING, NATURE, OUTLANDER SCOTLAND, STATELY HOMES & GARDENS, MOUNTAIN BIKING and SIKING. Some come with extensive background info designed to help you appreciate Scotland that little bit more as you travel around.

Finally, a FOOD & DRINK section provides a run-down of Scottish food and suggests some places you wouldn't want to miss.

I would hardly describe this as Scotland's Best Trip app. A cursory glance was enough for me. The descriptions of Dundee and Aberdeen are shockingly biased. Has anyone from the app designer team even been to any of these cities. Dundee, worth a visit for the V&A and Discovery alone, voted best place to live in Scotland, loved by foreign students and has a highly rated university. Gateway to the Glen's, not to mention the multitude of world class golf courses in the area. No space for Aberdeen..

Hi, I've certainly been to both Dundee and Aberdeen which is why I chose to concentrate on more appealing destinations in Scotland for this "best of" collection! As you say Discovery is outstanding and is covered in the app. It's all a matter of opinion of course, and I'm open to expanding coverage of both cities in the future.

Very user friendly, easy to navigate and well written. The itinerary section is a great tool if you prefer to travel with minimal planning.
