Due to the current Corona virus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season opening times and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like.

Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event's website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Events 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.
