SCOTLAND

W here To Go

W hat To See & Do

Welcome to the capital of Scotland! Get ready for lots of greenery,
medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and classical scottish architecture.
​I traveled to Scotland by train from London which was about 4.5 hours. I went with to of my nanny friends over the Easter holiday.
It was the closest most affordable option.
Our accommodation was a little bit further from the city centre than what I usually go for but the hotel was surprisingly stunning!
The city centre it a bit of a tourist trap with buskers and souvenier shops.  But it's like that everywhere to be honest!

An amazing view of Edinburgh city is from the top of Arthurs Seat, a mountain situated in the middle of the city. 
Take a tour through Edinburgh Castle where you can go at your own pace or listen to a tour guide by tape.
Rent a car or join a tour and drive up to the Scottish Highlands for views of the rolling hills, waterfalls and spot some scenic Harry Potter scenes! The mountains in the highlands are massive! With nsowy tips, I've never seen mountains so big, even in Canada.
And what's a trip to Scotland without a river boat cruise to search for the Lockness monster.

The currency used in
Scotland is the Sterling Pound. Some places will also accept the Euro. Scotland use to have their own currency and sometimes you can still find scottish notes floating around which are still acceptable to the bank although some businesses refuse to accept them, which they legally can not say no to, although they will tell you they can not accept it! Hmmmm.




W eather

Entrance Visa

People thought I was crazy when I decided to move to England .. based off the statistics being that all it does is rain there .. let me tell you, Scotlands weather was far more miserable than what I experienced living in England for 13 months.
Pictured below are the rare moments over my 4 days in Scotland that it decided to stop torrential down pouring. It was actually insane! Ive never seen so much rain in such a short time frame.
It was also insanely windy when we hiked up to the top of Arthur's seat, so safe to say the weather was all over the place.
Some people prefer this cozy up weather, so if you do, then Scotland is the place for you! A rain jacket and umbrella is mandatory at all times though ;)
