Why did you enjoy traveling to this destination?
I love the natural beauty and Scotland does not disappoint! The countryside is absolutely beautiful. I also stopped at St Andrews Links, the home of golf. I am not a golfer but to be able to see this amazing golf course and the history behind it was a thrill. I even hit a few balls there, how can you not resist! The castles are full of history and a must see. One of them is The Edinburgh Castle, it sits above the city on Castle Rock. No trip to Scotland would be complete without a trip to a local pub and a tour of a whiskey distillery.
Best time of year to travel here:
Spring or fall when the crowds are less. Weather will be a little cooler but great for sightseeing.
What tips can you offer someone interested in traveling to this destination?
I would rent a car and explore outside the cities. You have the freedom to travel at your own pace. If you are going to head outside the city, I would book hotels early as some destinations have limited accommodations.
Is this destination best for families, couples, etc?
Scotland is great for everyone!
