How about visiting the enchanting world of Harry Potter? Being the busiest of all the cities in Scotland, it has a glorious history to tell. Make sure to visit the Edinburgh Castle, the Calton Hill situated at the top of Princes Street, and the Elephant House. Besides, you even get to experience the Harry Potter world and travel down memory lane.
Standing tall, the beautiful castles of Aberdeenshire are bewitching. Pay witness to the Slains Castle or Dunnottar Castle. You may also go for Dolphin watch at Torry Battery or walk through the old fishing village of Footdee.
This place sits right in the lap of nature, providing the perfect environment for romance; where a poet can think about his muse and write poetry, where an artist can capture the beauty and bring it live on the canvas, this place is perfect for artists. It stretches from Inverness on the country’s rugged east coast to John O’Groats in the north.
Visit the coastal town of Dornoch known for the old castles and cathedral and Aviemore which is popular for skiing in winter. During summers, opt for hiking in the Cairngorms National Park. Do not forget to witness the beauty of Scotland’s most famous lake of Glen More which is a natural fault line that is marked by the Caledonian Canal.
Legends have it, one can spot the world’s famous sea monster, Nessie, at Loch Ness. Even if one is unable to spot the monster (well, not really a thing of reality), the Urquhart Castle is enough to make the visit worthwhile. Give yourself a treat by cruising along the loch and Caledonian Canal that connects Scotland’s east and west coasts. Other things that might interest you are Fort Augustus and Benedictine abbey.
