Scotland is a beautiful country that boasts the stunning Highland mountains, remote islands, and a rather brusque culture, most notably the Highland Games, haggis, strong whisky and kilts. Edinburgh, the capital, is known for its brisk temperatures, a fair bit of rain and the Summer Fringe Festival that attracts millions of tourists, comedians, actors and musicians to the beautiful historical city. If you love to get out into the fresh air, you absolutely must walk up to Arthur’s Seat for great views over the city and you will be able to find golf courses aplenty. Both the Old and New Town are listed UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so deserved. The Georgian city is very easy on the eye and holds a lot of character.
