If you are planning a trip to Scotland, then you should first forget about the pictures and ideas you took with you from home. Scotland is more than a beautiful piece of Great Britain with nice lochs and highlands. Scotland is more a complex and fascinating tale about the search for freedom and independence, the longing for peace and togetherness. You could be on the sand banks of Loch Shiel or on the moors of the Highlands, you ever will feel the pride of this Scottish nation, so often kicked and once been a kingdom itself. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, this past has led to the development of this sympathetic and sometimes unique character of Scotland.
Discover the dances and songs at the Scottish Highland Games or the hospitality in the hidden pubs along the way; taste the plate of porridge in the morning, the Cullen Skink soup for lunch or the Scottish national dish haggis with potatoes, beet pulp or a good old Scottish single malt whiskey in the evening. The range of new experiences is bright and colorful. The contact with the Scots is friendly and open. The weather is very varied…
Scotland is the top spot for landscape photography but also for the common Scots Human species and their way of life…
