5 Places you should not miss in Scotland
Scotland is a country where you'll find lots of nature, culture and traditions. Whether you plan to travel soon, or not, do not miss this post where we tell you about five essential points.
Among the hundreds of monuments and attractions you'll find in the city of Edimburgh, certainly one that should not be missed is its castle. In it you will see the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Royal Scottish Treasury plus other exhibitions. At one, every day of the year the Thirteen Hours Canyon fire and the views of the entire city will blow you away. Plan your visit: Edinburgh castle
Loch Ness It is not the largest of the lakes of Scotland, but is the most famous one (around the world) thanks to its famous inhabitant: the Loch Ness Monster. Legends aside, you can take a boat trip across Lake and learn about the attractions in the area or why not choose a hiking trail for a day surrounded by nature. Plan your visit: Visiti nverness lochness
William Wallace National Monument Near the city of Stirling stands a tower 70 meters high that pays tribute to Sir William Wallace, a Scottish soldier who fought for the independence of Scotland in the XIII century. In it you will learn more about the real character who inspired the movie "Braveheart". To ascend to the top of the tower you must climb the 200 steps of its spiral staircase, not suitable for claustrophobic but absolutely worth it. Plan your visit: National wallace monument
It is one of the most famous whiskey distilleries of Scotland located on the island Islay where you can try the "liquid smoke" which in 2015 celebrates its 200th anniversary.
