With numerous lochs, mountains, dense woodlands and vast moorlands, as well as cosmopolitan cities such as Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland is a popular destination for visitors from around the world.

Consisting of three main areas – the Lowlands, the Highlands and the many islands dotted off its long coastline Scotland is home to a population of 5 and a half million.

Scotland is a perfect destination for those who love road trips though I have also explore the country extensively by train too.

If whisky is your drink of choice a tour of the many distilleries may be worth adding to your Scottish itinerary.
