New routes bring Scotland closer than ever before

September 2, 2015


With several new flight routes having opened up in the last year and more coming in 2015/16, more people than ever have a direct flight option for coming to Scotland.

This opens up a wealth of opportunities throughout the tourism sector, with hundreds of millions of potential new clients.

Scotland has a fantastic reputation for tourism: from city breaks in Edinburgh or Glasgow to luxury golf trips to Gleneagles or St. Andrews, the level of service on offer is world-class.

Direct flights now operate from around 30 countries including the majority of the members of the European Union, the UAE, Qatar, Turkey, the United States, Canada and Mexico. If we add the number of potential travellers who will now benefit from a one-stop connection to Scotland via one of the major hubs – Schiphol, Heathrow, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Istanbul, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago, etc. – we’re into the billions.

With so many roads leading to Scotland, you now have the perfect opportunity to visit.

We at Palmerston House Educational Services are very proud of the options available to tourists and business visitors to Scotland. The country has some of the most breath-taking scenery we’ve ever seen as well as fascinating history and traditions – highland dancing, kilts, whisky, golf, castles, etc. – all of which are presented in fabulous visitor centres and tours. With all of these options available, Scotland seems to be the perfect place to visit to learn English while experiencing unique culture and tradition.

That’s where we come in.

Why not combine your visit to Scotland with an English language course in a native English-speaking environment? Our team can organise bespoke language and cultural experiences to suit individuals or groups, making sure that you see, experience and enjoy all the very best of what Scotland has to offer. We also arrange luxury golf and whisky tasting corporate events for business groups.

Our company is based in Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh, home to the world’s largest arts festival. The city’s popularity keeps growing. Since 1999, the number of passengers flying in and out of Edinburgh has doubled from around 5 million to more than 10 million each year. Last year, a tram system was completed, providing an environmentally friendly connection between the airport with the city centre, and this stops just around the corner from our language centres.

Our broad range of language and cultural programmes offer an opportunity to experience city life in Edinburgh, as well as weekend trips to visit other parts of the country, giving you the chance to see famous locations like Loch Ness, the Highlands, and many others. Meanwhile, children attending our exclusive boutique Summer School will have fun while surrounded by the beautiful nature of Scotland’s west coast.
