There are five international airports in Scotland. Aberdeen Airport is just less than 13 kilometres from the city, which is located on the north east coast. Flights to Aberdeen originate from Spain, Netherlands, France, Ireland and more. Flights from New York, Paris, Dubai, Milan, Warsaw and many more arrive in Glasgow via two international airports- Glasgow International Airport, 13 kilometres from the centre of Glasgow, and Glasgow Prestwick Airport, under 50 kilometres from the city. Edinburg is serviced by Edinburg Airport, which is just 16 kilometres from the city and welcomes flights from the likes of Berlin, New York, Zurich, and much more. The final international airport is Inverness Airport, located 11 kilometres to the north of Inverness, which is considered the gateway to the northern Highlands.
Getting around Scotland is done a number of ways. For inter-island travel, ferries are often used. These can take travellers between the larger islands as well between the edges of the Clyde estuary. Bus travel is inexpensive. The Citylink bus makes most areas accessible via bus, though this often costs more than the Megabus service, which goes from Perth, Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburg, and Glasgow. Train travel is convenient for many travel itineraries. Stations in larger cities are interlinked and also go to places in England, as well. Traversing Scotland by car gives your group the best freedom. However, bear in mind that the many mountains in Scotland create a system of roads that can be anything but direct in many cases. Be aware that there are very many under maintained roads in Scotland and take caution, especially when driving in the rain, fog, or at night to keep from hitting potholes and large cracks.
