[Edinburgh]  [Glasgow]
From majestic glens, historic castles and ruins and tranquil lochs to exciting concerts and thriving city nightlife, Scotland offers a wide range of things to see and do. Golf, of course, was created in Scotland, so you'll never be far from some of the world's greatest golf courses. Other activities for the athletic visitor include mountain climbing, sailing, skiing, snowboarding and canoeing. Scotland has a number of regions, each with its own distinctive geography and breathtaking scenery. These regions stretch from the Western Isles off the northwest coast of Scotland, across to the Orkneys and Shetland Isles off the north coast, continuing down through the Highlands, and then pass through the Lowlands regions, reaching Dumfries and Galloway and the borders in the south of the country.

Edinburgh's Georgian architecture has earned it a World Heritage site designation. The Edinburgh Castle, royal residence since the 11th century, dominates the medieval skyline of Scotland's capital. Literary giants Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson are as important to this great city as her majestic Crown Jewels, which are older than England's. History abounds as you stroll down the Royal Mile, where quiet courtyards beckon via narrow passageways, finally arriving at the Holyrood Palace. Evenings provide lots of lively pub entertainment, complete with traditional folk music, bagpipes, kilts and haggis.
William "Braveheart" Wallace struck a blow for freedom here in 1297. Known for its Victorian elegance and as a great shipbuilding center, Scotland's largest city has taken the splendor of the past and given it renewed luster. Its name means "dear green place," and has more city parks than anywhere else in Britain. It's also an excellent home base for exploring the gardens, pastures, farmlands and forests of the countryside.
