Scotland

Don't let the blokes wearing skirts fool you. The Scots are a tough lot. They'd have to be given their somewhat 'brass monkey' weather, they're occasional fights with their pommy neighbours (thank goodness for Mel Gibson) and their wild countryside. This is one stunning country with raw mountain peaks, deep glassy lakes (including the Loch Ness) and a people who are wild and fun. Even in the slightly more touristy places like Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Isle of Skye it's easy to encounter one-off adventures normally involving the extroverted locals.

Ye cannut miss:

  • Edinburgh Castle
  • Shopping in Glasgow
  • Joining a mini bus of people for a day tour up to Loch Ness
