Days out in Scotland

But the people make it even better. Weegies welcome you to Glasgow with cheeky banter. Highlanders sing Gaelic songs. Largs Scottish-Italians serve legendary ice cream. Nom nom.

Did someone say ‘dramatic scenery’? Enter Edinburgh’s castle-topped volcano and the three mahoosive bridges over the River Forth. Head through Fife and you can stop off at home of golf St Andrews. Then hop over the Tay to Dundee’s V&A design museum (looks like a lost spaceship).

Kids love Scotland’s parks, pools and (sometimes gruesome) historic attractions. Adults love the whisky, culture, and romantic scenery. Either way, you’re onto a winner.
