Eat, drink and be merry
For foodies, Scotland is the place to visit. Dishes that you can't get anywhere else include Aberdeen Angus beef, Stornoway black pudding, Arbroath Smokies, and Shetland salmon. The Scots are also justifiably proud of their homemade whisky, ales, scones, shortbread and haggis. They also love curry. Glasgow has been named the curry capital of Britain four times!

Scotland is coldest in January and February. However, the ever-popular ski season runs from November and April, and attracts visitors from all over the world. July and August are the best times to visit if you'd like to soak up some sun or hike the Highlands while staying in Scotland vacation rentals.
Seeing the sights
You won't fail to be impressed by the sights in the land of the thistle. If you're a fan of Shakespeare, Cawdor Castle is the fictional home of the Thane of Cawdor in Macbeth.
