Scotland Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyThe home of golf, the home of the Loch Ness Monster … oh and the home of Scotch whisky. Not that there’s any connection, but a couple of drams after 18 holes on one of the best courses in the world and who knows what you might see. The Scots went out to provide the world’s engineers and financiers but what riches they left behind. St Andrews, the engineers’ city Glasgow, Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and Castle (try to get there for the Festival and Tattoo); Burns’s ‘banks and braes’; the heather and mountains; the Great Glen that splits the country and provides an unrivalled inland cruise through the Caledonian Canal from Inverness to Fort William. And forget the myth of ‘dour Scots’ – they’re the most hospitable folk you could find. Enjoy the many attractions on the mainland … but don’t overlook the islands. The Orkneys and Shetlands further away north, and the multitude of smaller, closer, Hebrides off the west coast. Islay (for the single malts), Harris (for the tweed), Lewis, and ‘over the sea’ (despite the new bridge) to romantic Skye with its own spectacular mountains and wildlife.
