Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Undiscovered Scotland, the ultimate online guide to Scotland. The site is a combination of visitor guide, accommodation listing and business directory, and aims to show you what the country is really like. We also offer website design, maintenance and hosting services.

On 22 March 2020 the Scottish First Minister said: "Scotland is a warm and welcoming country and I fervently hope it’s not too long before we are opening our arms and our countryside to visitors again – but right now our priority must be to protect people from this virus, protect our NHS and protect Scotland."

Until normality returns, we offer Undiscovered Scotland as a means of reminding our visitors that there is an amazing, fascinating and beautiful world beyond the walls that now confine so many of us: and in the hope that it will not be too long before everyone can once more visit and enjoy what we believe to be the most wonderful part of that world.
