Things to Do in Edinburgh: Enjoy a Beer at One of Scotland’s Independent Breweries
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. It makes for nervous driving, but it’s well worth the jumps and starts: Scotland’s stark, stunning mountains, and its abandoned castles and dense forests, are all just a little ways outside of its cities. If you survive the drive and are looking for things to do in Edinburgh, you deserve a good, stiff drink.
