A Traveller’s Guide to Scotland
Whilst you are journeying through the beautiful countryside within Scotland, there are so many great activities that you can do. This great, condensed guide by Travel Maestro goes through some of the fun activities Scotland has to offer.
Firstly, if you are interested in indulging into the culture of Scotland, why not participate in activities that are well and truly Scottish?
The first activity could be a traditional hike up one of the many peaks in Scotland, after all Scotland is home to the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. If you are visiting the upper highlands, be sure to visit the Formartine and Buchan Way walk route. On these routes you are surrounded by the beautiful countryside, where wild life such as ground mammals and birds of prey can be seen from afar. Whilst on your journeys, you can also have the chance to test some of the famous seafood at one of the nearby coastlines.
If you have a love of the outdoors, then you will love your visit to Scotland. Outdoor activities include, mountain biking, light water rafting and canoeing. If these sort of activities are out of your comfort zone, then golf is always an option in Scotland. Founded in the heart of the country, golf has been played in Scotland for well over 600 years! If these outdoor activities are not on your agenda, there are cities such as, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness that offer a range of entertainment during the day and at night. The dry ski slope in Glasgow attracts visitors all year round.
If you’re thinking about dinner, then a fish supper has got to be on the menu. Scotland is famous for its great tasting haddock and cod, and a fish supper will go down a treat at the end of a long, eventful day.
