Scotland is a country that I have wanted to visit for years, and was finally able to make it a reality last year when I first visited Tomar in the celebrations of Hogmanay New Year in Edinburgh. As one of the most negotiable walking cities I have visited, Audrey and struck the pavement marveling at the architecture, stunning castles and winter carnival events in the city center. When we needed to warm up we got into pubs to gormandize in Haggis, Neeps and Tatties while washing it down with a hot Toddy.

When we were in the mood for something a bit sweeter we decided to try a Deep-fried Mars Bar – a Scottish specialty. Although disgustingly unhealthy (essentially this a chocolate bar covered in batter and fried) it tasted delicious and ten times better than having a chocolate bar on its own. When we were not trying Scottish cuisine or wandering around narrow streets, we decided to take some day trips to see other events and attractions. Our favorite being Loony Dook where a group of crazy men, women and children wearing Halloween-like costumes rushed into the frozen Firth of Forth cold.
The real highlight of our time in Scotland was having the opportunity to explore the Scottish Highlands (including the Isle of Skye) with Haggis Adventure Tours. This road trip made it possible to highlight some of the most picturesque areas of the country where we could not leave our cameras.
When we were not traveling we spent our time trying out as much Scottish food as we could possibly including a taste of Irn Bru, ginger beer, tablets, Haggis flavored chips, scotch chocolate and scottish whiskey and more.
The following is an attraction travel guide that provides a snapshot of the best things to do in Scotland during your next vacation to one of my favorite countries across Europe.
