SCOTLAND TRAVEL GUIDE
Plan your trip top Scotland
I will always remember my first time in Scotland because it was a very special trip. The first place I decided to visit was Glasgow and it was the first time traveling as a tourist on my own. My plan was to spend a weekend in Glasgow; however, there was a huge snow storm and I was stuck in Glasgow for a week. It was an experience. Since then, I have been looking forward to returning to the country to discover other corners of Scotland.
The Highlands is a place I cannot wait to visit in Scotland. What better way to get to know Scottish traditions than touring the charming villages, historical sites and natural corners in this part of the country? Combine it with a visit to Edinburgh or Glasgow for an unforgettable trip.

PLACES TO VISIT IN SCOTLAND
Tips for every destination
Edinburgh is one of the most popular places to visit in Scotland. It’s the country’s capital. I’ve yet to visit Edinburgh. Everyone speaks wonders about Edinburgh which makes me want to visit this city very soon. Cobbled streets, medieval buildings, charming cafes, a cozy atmosphere… Edinburgh has it all to insure a perfect gateaway.
Glasgow is also an interesting destination in Scotland. It is not as beautiful as Edinburgh; however, in my opinion, it is worth visiting. I loved getting lost in its streets, galleries and cafes.
If you are seeking nature, there is no better place to visit than the Highlands. A road trip through the Highlands will allow you to enjoy incredible landscapes and discover countless castles. All this while you get to know Scottish gastronomy and customs.
If this is not the first time you are visiting Scotland and you want to visit less popular destinations, I recommend visiting: Inverness, Aberdeen, Stirling or the Isle of Arran. Also do not miss the opportunity to visit the Glenfinnan Viaduct, famous thanks to the Harry Potter movies.
Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the United Kingdom. It is the perfect destination for a multi-day trip since it offers so many things to do. Its magical cobbled streets hide corners that will surprise you. In addition, Edinburgh is an important cultural and artistic center. Many festivals are celebrated throughout the year.
On your visit to the Scottish capital, do not forget to visit the Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Victoria Street, the Royal Mile, Calton Hill, the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Cathedral and the National Museum of Scotland.
Glasgow is the second largest city in Scotland. Apart from having several very interesting places to visit, Glasgow has a very attractive atmosphere. Its streets are full of cafes, pubs, restaurants of all kinds, galleries, urban art, vintage shops, etc. You will not get bored in Glasgow.
Some of the most interesting places to visit in Glasgow are George Square, Glasgow Cathedral, Buchanan Street, Glasgow Necropolis, Museum of Modern Art, The Lighthouse, Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Ashton Lane, Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Museum.
