Holidaying In Scotland
Posted on Nov 9 2011 at 10:52:09 AM in Travel
The reason that I would recommend choosing Scotland as a holiday destination is because you will have such a varied choice with regards to how you choose you spend your time once you arrive - you’re sure to be able to do just about whatever you want to do. Here are my top tips for how to get the most from your time spent in this exceptionally unique country:
1. Go to a sporting event. You can choose between going to an Old Firm derby football match between Celtic and Glasgow Rangers or perhaps a rugby game at Murrayfield. Scotland showed once again during the recent World Cup in New Zealand that they are one of the best rugby sides in the world and you can also get deals on a Murrayfield hotel by buying your tickets to a match at the same time as you purchase your local accommodation. You can do the same thing if you are going to an Old Firm derby at either Ibrox or Parkhead.
2. Visit Edinburgh. This ancient city has a unique and vibrant culture due to the series of International festivals that it hosts annually throughout the summer that attract visitors from all over the world. It is also a city that possesses exceptional architecture within its walls – I would definitely recommend a trip to the cathedral to see the steeple from inside the vestibule as well as a trip to the National Gallery. You can also get great deals on a luxury Edinburgh hotel by having a look online. There are numerous hotels with outstanding facilities dotted throughout the city centre.
3. Go whale spotting. This is best achieved by getting a boat to either the Isle of Egg or the Isle of Skye in August as this when there are schools of humpback whales migrating round the northern tip of Scotland.
