The Netherlands

Find out why our mountains and scenery attract Dutch tourists with these insights from VisitScotland.

Scotland appeals to the Dutch because of its mountains and open spaces. Dutch visitors enjoy touring, including exploring the scenery, taking walks, sightseeing and relaxing. 

Cities are also popular destinations. The Dutch tend to be more inclined towards independent travel and are strong users of the internet for researching and booking trips.  

Camping and caravanning are popular accommodation choices for Dutch holidaymakers, who are also becoming increasingly ‘environmentally-conscious’. They will therefore actively seek out businesses which operate in a sustainable way.
