Today is St Andrews day! It's Scotland's national day. Whilst it isn't as big a celebration as it is in some other countries but I'll be trying to catch the fireworks at Edinburgh Castle tonight. It's looking likely that I won't be living in Scotland this time next year so I'm trying to savour my time in this beautiful country. Scotland is my home and I love it. I think that Scotland should be right up there on people's bucket lists as it has so much to offer. Here are my reasons for why you should visit Scotland:
1. Scotland is a relatively small country so it's possible to see a lot in a short about of time.
It doesn't actually take that long to drive around Scotland so if travelling by car, then you can see a lot of different places in a short time. In April I went on a day tour of the highlands with Grayline (which you can read about here) and I got to travel to Loch Ness and some other really interesting parts of Scotland. In a quick going 12 hours, we saw lots of different landscapes, wildlife and even the sun! I can't drive but once I learn how to I'm going to plan a more in-depth road trip because whilst I've seen a lot of Scotland I know that there's still so much more to see!
