Helicopter Rides Scotland

Helicopter Rides Scotland

Scotland is a beautiful country. Although the weather leaves a lot to be desired, there are some parts of it that are truly awe inspiring. The Highlands are actually considered one of the last great wilderness's in Europe.


If you have a few weeks, then hiring a car is a very good way to explore all that the country has to offer but if you're only going to be there for a few days, then you might as well blow the budget on a helicopter ride. Of course, hiring a helicopter and flying all around the country isn't something that the majority of people can afford to do. There are however companies that offer Scotland helicopter rides for just half an hour and you would be surprised at just how much you can explore in such a short period of time. In my opinion, there is no better way to experience the beauty of Scotland than on board a helicopter. If you are going to splash out on Scotland helicopter rides, in my opinion the following three places really stand out.


This is a truly beautiful city and the surrounding area has got quite a lot going for it too. From Cawdor Castle to the Culloden Battle Field, there is an amazing amount of history to be witnessed and both look spectacular from high up in the air. I would also strongly advice that you request the village of Fortrose to be included in your itinerary and maybe even the Kessock Bridge. There is a truly magical beach that shouldn't be missed too called Nairn beach.

Loch Schene

If Inverness is a little bit too urban for you, why not try Loch Schene. It is possible to take to the sky from Peterculter and then enjoy marvellous views of Aberdeenshire. If you choose Peterculter as your departure point your flight is also likely to pass North of Banchory, East of Alford, and Kemnay before you eventually fly over the beautiful Loch of Schene itself. It is one of Scotland's most beautiful lochs and though there it has no monster, it is definitely not short of magic.


Of course no visit to Scotland would be complete without a visit to its cultural capital. Though not the political capital of the country, it receives far more tourists each year and the reason it is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. There are multiple different companies offering Scotland helicopter rides here and no matter which one you choose you will undoubtedly get to witness the Princes Street, the Royal Mile and of course Calton Hill from a thousand feet in the air.

So in conclusion, if you are interested in Scotland helicopter rides then hopefully this article has given you enough information to allow you to choose the best location to explore. No matter where you choose, your first time in a helicopter is likely to be something that you will never forget, however with a little thought you can experience it in truly spectacular surroundings.
