solo travelers

I am planning to travel to Scotland within the year.  Are there places or people who help with people traveling solo?   I am interested in hiking, tours, castles, historical areas.

    Hi @evarunnr1_ Scotland is pretty safe so being 'solo' isn't a big deal. Apply the usual rules of awareness of your surroundings and you'll be fine. 

    What month are you heading to Scotland? 
    Bespoke tours.
    Whisky, Castles and Food a speciality.

    Hi @evarunnr1_

    Whilst you are travelling please pop into our Information Centres as they can provide you with a great deal of local information. We get a lot of solo travelers coming through our doors looking for just that extra bit of local knowledge to help guide them around the area they are in.
