Find places throughout Scotland to 'Stay, Eat, Buy, Do, Enjoy' and receive a real community welcome.

Explore our map of Scotland to discover where you can meet proud and passionate locals and be welcomed into our world.


Scotland is a small but diverse country – which is a huge part of its appeal - and Community Tourism enterprises are popping up all across the map from Unst on Shetland, to Newcastleton on the English border, and from Angus on the east coast to virtually every island on the west coast - and everywhere in between.

To inspire conscious travel to each of these amazing places you can search under four regions of Scotland - and six different types of visitor offer. And do come back again as we are adding new places all the time as our network grows and expands.
