Many Americans have Scotch in their veins – wait, that didn’t come out right! The correct terminology would be that many are of Scottish descent. Scotland is a beautiful country with bustling cities, quaint villages, Lochs (lakes), mountains and pristine rivers. It is also rich in history reaching back into Viking time and beyond. The Scots of old were fierce fighters – even the Romans didn’t want to mess with them.

Edinburgh often comes to mind first when thinking of Scotland, and it is a beautiful city and well worth a visit. But be sure to see Glasgow as well and some of the smaller, out of the way places. Sterling, with its imposing castle is well worth the visit, and also Aberdeen, a historic seaport. And then, of course, there’s everything in between!

Scotland is a top destination for travelers from around the world. Here are a few activities to get you started…
