Scotland: tourism in the land of legends, lochs and castles

From the Highlands to the Lowlands, Scotland has a staggering variety of landscapes spread over a relatively small space. Certainly the glens, purple heather and craggy castles are plentiful, but tourism here is also about thriving art and museum scenes and delicious cuisine.

  • Scottish Architecture Shines in Glasgow

    By DREW GOUGH / 11 September 2015

    By DREW GOUGH / 17 March 2015
    Even for a country of narrow roads, the roads here are too narrow. There’s no paved shoulder, no shoulder to speak of at all—only an ancient moss-covered wall to one side and a loch to the other. And this, the A82 highway running north from Glasgow through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, is considered a main road here.

If you survive the drive and are looking for things to do in Edinburgh, you deserve a good, stiff drink.
