Crazy Fun Adventures
If you are not much of a hiker or an outdoor person or a whisky drinker (although the whisky tours are kind of a must-do in Scotland), take a look at blogger Dave & Debs list of Crazy Scottish adventures. They have lived in the capital of Scotland, Edinburg and their ideas and recommendations are definitely different from the typical tourist book list. These adventures include spending a night at a haunted Bed and Breakfast, visiting one of the Scotland’s oldest pubs, and exploring the island of Staffa. These tips are all fun guaranteed!
Visit Scotland with an open mind and be ready to enjoy all the new experiences. The appreciation of the surrounding nature and history can be seen in Scotland, especially when adventuring away from the major cities. The Scottish are very proud of their country and culture. Keep that in mind, feel free to ask, and learn. You will also find that the Scots are very friendly, welcoming, and fun loving people. And hey, go along with it! Have a pint at a local countryside pub and listen to the stories from locals – that is if you can make sense of them through the rough Scottish accent!
