I have a slight obsession with Scotland, and i have no idea why, i've just always liked it and wanted to learn anything and everything about it. I've got books on folklore, and legends, history, modern attractions... you name it i've got it. It must just be a connection to it through a past life or something. But whatever it is, I've decided to put up some info on here about attractions and other things to do in scotland. I have some of my favorite pictures, and music that I think are worth a minute of time.

If there are any other lovers of europe out there and you'd like to find out more about or visit scoland these sites will help. The first one is scoland attractions, it'll help you with places to go, food to try, castles to know, where to stay and more. The second one is of strange places to visit in scotland, like any other places there are places that have built up a reputation of wierd, but worthy of acknowledgement. :) And the third site is for other walking lovers like myself... i dream of one day walking on the beautiful, green rolling hills as far as the eye can see. That site has walking routes set up for different places and occasions and it's worth checking out if you want to take a stroll in the highlands!!

Scotland's Six Cities

Aberdeen's famous 'Granite Mile', Union Street, is the gateway to over 800 shops, restaurants and bars. Visitors can chill-out in lovely flower-filled parks - Aberdeen is 13 times winner of Britain in Bloom. Best of all, the city has its own golden sandy beach.

Dundee - 'City of Discovery' and Scotland's fourth largest - has transformed itself in recent years into a lively, cosmopolitan centre that's an increasingly popular choice as a short city-break destination or for a great family day out.

Edinburgh, the inspiring capital of Scotland, is a historic, cosmopolitan and cultured city. The setting is wonderfully striking; the city is perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags which rise from the generally flat landscape of the Lothians, with the sheltered shoreline of the Firth of Forth to the north.

Overflowing with style and culture, Scotland's biggest city is a revelation to its growing number of visitors. Its blend of internationally-acclaimed museums and galleries, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fabulous shopping and superlative wining and dining prove irresistible.

Inverness was granted its city status in 2000. It is the prosperous hub of the Highlands, with an enviable location on the banks of the River Ness at the head of the Great Glen, making it an ideal base for exploring.
Stirling gained city status in 2002. It is Scotland's heritage capital, where the Wars of Independence were fought and won; where, for three centuries, monarchs ruled in regal splendour and where merchants and craftsmen plied their trade below the castle rock.
