At Purple Roofs, we list thousands of gay friendly and gay owned accommodations, and yours could be next. If your accommodations welcome the LGBT community, add them here. Scotland packs a punch with its steep history, strong cultural traditions, jaw-dropping scenery, a very tasty culinary scene, and lovely first-rate accommodations along the way. We can also visit Glenkinchie Whisky Distillery for a tour.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender LGBT rights in Scotland are generally in line with the rest of the United Kingdomwhich have evolved extensively over time and are now regarded as some of the most progressive in Europe. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal since and the age of consent has been equal to that for opposite-sex activity sinceat A same-sex marriage law was approved by the Scottish Parliament in February and received royal assent on 12 March
There are some great LGBT events happening throughout the year, while a number of bars, restaurants and clubs offer themed nights, parties, exhibitions and much, much more.

Download Detailed Itinerary. Here we take in the imposing Gothic Glasgow Cathedral as well as a different sort of cathedral — the grand Victorian cathedral of culture otherwise known as Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in its magnificent stone building. We then go north to Stirling Castle, admiring views across some ancient independence battlefields from this magnificent stronghold.
There is the 'gay district' in Glasgow which is around the Polo Lounge area. I have quite a lot of gay friends and there is definitely a thriving gay scene which exploded last week with the huge Pride march. As Glasgow is by far Scotland's largest city, and the most cosmopolitan, I would expect it to be the most prominent in Scotlandbut you never know. No idea about Edinburgh.
Scotland is home to Edinburgh and Glasgow, where the gay scenes are abundant and the people welcome you with open arms. Enjoy a discrimination-free vacation in the beautiful country of Scotland. It features a 60 mile land border with England toward the south.
