If you’re looking for a trip that’s not too far from home then Scotland could be the place for you.

On arrival in Edinburgh you will be looked after by the Scottish Association of Young Farmers' Clubs, before heading off on your travels across Scotland – staying with host families along the way. Scotland’s rich and diverse culture can give delegates a real insight to rural and agricultural life in the country as they will be staying with rural families throughout their stay. Delegates should expect to move hosting areas once a week however they might move twice or three times within the area meaning they may only stay with hosting families for 2 or 3 nights each. Hosts will be Scottish Young Farmers Members and their families normally in a rural and agricultural setting so a keen interest in either has been seen as a benefit in past years and encourage all delegates to have an interest in Scottish Rural life to enjoy the trip.

Arrive in Edinburgh for the orientation meeting; this is a chance to meet the other delegates’ form all over the world. Delegates will spend the first few nights in a youth hostel in Edinburgh, then travel to host families before the royal highland show, where the exchangees will again be staying the youth hostel in Edinburgh’s city centre. Your trip finishes with the Royal Highland Show, a chance to renew friendships and enjoy more Scottish Hospitality.  This is likely to be a very hectic two weeks, with a good mixture of farms, sightseeing and social life.  Why not take the plunge and apply for a short trip and see what Scotland has to offer.

What the travellers say...

"Some people wondered why I wanted to go on a trip through YFC Travel and stay in somebody else’s home. It’s a fantastic way to experience another country and the host club that you stay with takes you to the best places in the area and really looks after you while you are there. I’ve experienced this in Australia and in Scotland and really recommend you give it a go!”  Nicola Chegwidden, Cornwall FYFC
