Direct Flights from Spain to Scotland

Spain and Scotland are both great European travel destinations, each with some very different things to offer the traveler. While Spain has great beaches, Scotland has some of the best hiking in Europe. Spain has unrivaled restaurants and food, and Scotland is better known for whisky. One thing they have in common is that Scots and Spaniards both love their football, and traveling fans on their way to Madrid for the Champions League final may want to add on a side-trip to football-mad Scotland. It is now easier than ever for travelers to combine these two unique destinations in a single trip, with plenty of direct flights from Spain to Scotland.

Many of these flights are on the small budget airlines which have come to dominate European travel in the past decade. The spread of these low-cost carriers has brought a drastic decrease in the cost of air travel around Europe, and these routes are no exception. A recent search for the EasyJet flight from Madrid to Edinburgh brought up a starting price of just €28, though weekend flights can be substantially more.

Unfortunately, there are no scheduled flights from Barcelona to any of the Scottish airports, so linking up from there will take a stop either in Madrid or London. From Madrid, your only option is Edinburgh, while Glasgow is serviced from most of the mid-size airports in Spain by RyanAir and other budget carriers. The only flight directly to Aberdeen starts in Mallorca.
