With dramatic mountain peaks just waiting to be climbed, stunning lakes, lochs and greenery, Scotland is home to breathtaking natural scenery in addition to incredible historic towns, cities and villages.
A visit to the old city of Edinburgh, stopping by the historic castle and traversing through the cobbled streets of the town ('auld town') is a must while in Scotland. At the quaint pubs and restaurants here, travelers can sample local delicacies and time-old classic dishes such as haggis (though arguably not for the fussy eaters in your party!) or a smooth glass of Scotch whiskey.
While exploring Edinburgh old town, don't miss a trip to spooky Mary King's Close -- a historic street that, after being closed off to the public, became buried under the new city. Now this street is the starting point of haunted and historic tours where costumed actors lead travelers through creepy settings including houses of people impacted by the plague.
Cities and spooky settings aside, Scotland is home to phenomenal scenery. Those who think they've got what it takes can try their luck at conquering Ben Nevis -- the tall mountain that looms over Scotland and was the setting for the Braveheart movie. Loch Lomond is also worth a visit. The loch is the largest lake in the entire United Kingdom. After you have caught your breath from gasping at its beauty, consider hiking along the waterfront, setting down a blanket for a picnic, or taking a boat tour across its gentle waters.
Every type of accommodation imaginable is available in Scotland. In rural areas or spots surrounding more natural sites (such as Loch Lomond), travelers can opt to rent quaint cottages or stay in homely 'bed and breakfasts'.
The summer months are the best time to visit Scotland. Owing to its northern location, Scotland never sees especially high temperatures and so this season offers the best chance of sunshine and minimal rain.
