Scotland has much to offer in tdnews-files-2013-10-loch-ness-670x440-131016-jpghe way of scenery. To go there for anything other than seeing the majesty of nature’s ability would be a waste of resources. Often, you’ll find the recommendation to go on your vacation to a country in the summer. That doesn’t apply to Scotland. There is no summer, save for one day in the year. Don’t let that discourage you, because there are plenty of reasons to visit the cold isles. If you are planning to visit Scotland soon, do try the following few things:

Loch Ness

You might have heard of the monster that supposedly roams the river. When you visit, you will find an abundance of tourists’ monster hunting. If that isn’t your cup of tea, the scenery itself is enough to keep you in the majestic awe.

Isle of Skye

In the most Northern part of Scotland, you can visit the Isle of Skye. The mountains and rocky plains are a true testament to the beauty the world has to offer.

Whiskey

There is rarely anything more Scottish than whiskey. It would be a crime to not visit one of the many Highland Whiskey Distilleries scattered around the Scottish lands.

Jacobite Steam Train

Harry Potter fans will find this one a treat. Ride the Jacobite steam train, the same train that took the wizard students to Hogwarts, through the lush Scottish through the Scottish mountains and feasts your eyes on some of the most beautiful views the country has to offer.

Haggis

Haggis may not be every person’s favorite meal. It might even be the bane of many people’s existence. For the few, however, this is a delicacy that should not be missed. Taste true Scottish cuisine with a spoon full of sheep’s pluck (heart, liver, and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach.

Scotland is not, by any means, condensed to just these activities. There is much more the country has to offer that you can easily stumble on with the help of the friendly people it houses.
