museums and attractions

Attractions in Scotland

Scotland has several scenic heritage railways and a large range of transport museums, such as Glasgow's new Riverside Museum, as well as a wide range of maritime, road and aviation museums. Don't miss the lovely Loch Lomond paddle steamer the Maid of the Loch, a great place for a meal or a cuppa.

The Steam Heritage Guide includes contact details, opening times and description of preservation and heritage attractions across the whole of Scotland.
