You have to live it to believe it!

    Scotland for foodies

    It’s time to indulge your senses! Scotland’s green scenery is not the only feature that draws people to the north of England. In addition to its beauty and natural attractions the culinary scene is one of the best features we must admit as this bountiful land boasts tons of fresh produce. From splashing fresh salmon and trouts to the delicious lobster in the Highlands. The fresh seafood and the shellfish is a delicacy that will raise your taste buds, especially the “Arbroath Smokies''. Try the succulent Aberdeen Angus steaks and the popular and iconic Haggis, made of sheep’s pluck mince with spices, oatmeal, onion and suet. It usually comes with neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes). Least but not last, sweet treats will be the icing on the cake after a delicious meal. The Scottish tablet is a piece of heaven with sugar, condensed milk and butter. And the perfect pudding? Sticky toffee pudding! A delicious moist sponge cake with dates, toffee sauce, and vanilla custard or ice cream. Too good to be true? One will never be enough!

    2. Visit Edinburgh, the capital city

    Edinburgh is a city with a magic atmosphere with the cobbled streets of the Old Town leading to Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny. From the castle you have incredible views of the city. Visit the monuments and the memorials in Calton Hill and get sweeping views from Arthur’s Seat. The city is loaded with history, architecture and a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage Site status. If you want to enjoy the Edinburgh Fringe festival , plan your trip in August!

    3. Incomparable trip to the best landscapes

    Many films have used the incomparable settings and lush green landscapes of Scotland as the perfect backdrop for magic stories or medieval battles. The Harry Potter series or Braveheart are some of them. Take some time to explore the mountains, the natural parks, the old castles or the hundreds of lakes and islands and revive those scenes, but now, with you as the main character. You can even climb Ben Nevis, the highest point in the United Kingdom!

    4. Play some golf in St. Andrews

And within the Kingdom of Fife, St. Andrews is the world-famous Home of Golf!

    5. Nessie, the Loch Ness monster.

    When you hear Loch Ness, the first image that comes to your mind it’s probably that of the large marine creature that inhabits this lake in the Scottish Highlands, Nessie. Is it a myth? A legend of Scottish folklore? Is it true? Well, the Drumnadrochit Hotel’s Loch Ness Exhibition shows pictures and fascinating exhibits that will challenge even the most skeptical minds.

    6. Visit the castles of Scotland

    From well preserved medieval strongholds to haunted towers, romantic cliff top remains, turreted fairy-tale castles. We can say that Scotland is dotted with spellbinding castles that will leave you speechless. Visit the famous Eilean Dolean Castle or discover some of the less known gems including Dunrobin Castle, Floors Castle, Fyvie Castle, Culzean Castle and Country Park or Drummond Castle and its beautiful gardens. There is no doubt that Kilburn Castle or Dilerton will make your day as well but for a very different castle, you might want to see Kelburn Castle, depicting interwoven cartoons on the exterior walls, although the interior is lush and sophisticated and it has a magnificent Chinese garden.

    7. Visit the isle of Skye

    The Isle of Skye is a top location to visit in Scotland, west of the Highlands. In it you will find some of the most spectacular landscapes in the entire country including the cliffs of Kilt Rock, Dunvegan Castle, Eilean Donan Castle or the pretty town of Portree.
