I should confess after visiting Scotland early in 2016 I was tempted to move to Edinburgh – it is that beautiful.
Shame about the cold harsh weather sometimes although it makes for a snowy Christmas.
I love travelling and Scotland is a place I will visit again.
I still remember the view of the city when I came out of Queen Street station in Edinburgh – it was amazing.
Scotland is a beautiful place made more beautiful by the friendly Scottish people. Personally I found the accent in Glasgow difficult to understand compared to Edinburgh. I hear the accents get worse the further north you go!
I spent the first few nights in Glasgow, in a fancy hotel called Blythswood Square and me and Benjamin, who had invited me over, had a brilliant time.
The first night I was treated to dinner at the famous Ubiquitous Chip.
I liked the atmosphere and the vibe of the place.
Ben and his Scottish work colleagues tried to get to drink cocktails and all but having watched Trevor Noah’s sketch about how the Scots drink I was cautious the whole evening.
After a short stay in Glasgow I got on the train to the city of Edinburgh
I personally prefer Edinburgh.
Maybe its the castles, or the people, or both!
My stay in the country was short and sweet.
But I will definitely be going back again probably during the summer and explore other beautiful places.
Below are places that prompted Rough Guide, a travel guidebook, to declare the country the most beautiful country in the world.
Apparently it is the wild beaches, deep Lochs and craggy castles that make Scotland the most beautiful in the world.
Lets start with the beaches for your visit next year in 2018.
#1 Calgary Bay.
#2 Scarista Beach, Isle of Harris.
#3 Loch Coruisk.
Let us head over to Glasgow.
#5 Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Scotland’s most popular free attractions and features 22 themed, state-of-the-art galleries displaying over 8,000 objects and artifacts.
#6 Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow.
#11 Rannoch Moor and Glencoe
