  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Dominated by the twin and fiercely contrasting cities of ornate, castle-dominated Edinburgh and working class yet emotive Glasgow, the northernmost part of the UK attracts visitors by the bucket load, eager to soak up the deep-rooted heritage, the quirky local cultures and even to hunt for monsters amongst the deep waters of notorious Loch Ness.

    Edinburgh’s perhaps the best starting point, where you can walk the Royal Mile, stare from the heights of the spectacular castle and sample Haggis in one of the hundreds of plush restaurants. Edinburgh peaks for The Fringe, an annual, international theatre and culture festival that draws shows from all over the world, and pushes prices to the upper limit. Hogmanay, the city’s infamously manic New Year’s celebration, is also a special time to drop by.

    Glasgow is more ‘deep fried mars bar’ than haggis, though it does have a beautifully old-school city centre, complete with some of the country’s best shopping, and offers sports fans the chance to catch one of football’s greatest rivalries, Glasgow Celtic vs. Glasgow Rangers. It’s also a great launching spot for the many attractions of the wet, mossy highlands.

    In amongst the ample whiskey distilleries and still lochs (lakes) of the northern end of Scotland, you can drift off into a seemingly endless, dramatic expanse of countryside, or head for the rugged, wave-battered beauty of one of the many northern island’s. If you hit the very tip, you’ll find ‘John O ‘Groats’, the tiny Highland Village that marks the launching point of many cross-country trips, as well as being home to some spectacular craggy cliffs and views out into the North Atlantic Ocean.

    Many parts of Scotland are still under the control of nature; little accessed and begging to be explored for the more adventurous traveler. Others are steeped in ancient and attractive culture, dingy in winter yet sparkling with character and local charm. You can even try skiing, though we’d suggest a hot whisky and brisk hike to one of the many peaks is more in order. And when it comes to heading back south, how about a stroll along Scotland’s border marker, Hadrian’s Roman Wall?

    In 2014 residents will vote in a referendum on independence from the United Kingdom.
