Beyond the most obvious and predictable tourist attractions, Scotland offers a unique blend of the world-renowned Irish Whiskey and a couple of magical travel destinations. And contrary to what some think, Scotland is home to the unexplored beauty that extends beyond swimming in the world-famous fairy pools and drinking in the most remote of pubs.
With that out of the way, let us explore some of the best areas to visit while in Scotland, shall we?
- Take a breathtaking photo from the eagle’s eye view of the country’s west coast. Thanks to convenient and well-thought-out services such as Loch Lomond, a daring tourist can look forward to getting a rare glimpse of Scotland’s untouched sandy beaches while several thousand feet above the ground. And the most exciting part of the deal is that the fee only translates to approximately only as little as $150 per adult. What a steal!
- The Pink Sands of Angus’ Coast – There’s no denying that the white sands on the Scotland’s west coast are renowned, but it is the little-known Lunan Bay on the Angus coastline that makes it hard to deny Scotland’s raw beauty. With the sandstone hues and gleaming pink sand grains and turquoise backdrop, Angus Coast might as well be one of the most peaceful and attractive places on earth.
- Traverse the 5000-year old settlement – Arguably one of the earliest human settlement of all time, the Skrae Brae in Orkney is one of the few neolithic villages that have survived the true test of time and weather. It was unearthed a century ago when a mighty storm uncovered a gigantic sand dune in 1850. Currently, being one of Unesco’s World Heritage Sites, the Skare Brae is one of the few places that make Scotland worth trudging to.
- Fungal’s Cave on the Isle of Staffa – Hey, cave lovers listen up. If you haven’t yet been to Fungal’s cave, then you haven’t yet lived and seen the most intriguing caves of all time. Fungal’s cave on the Isle of Staffa is one-of-a-kind cave that is joined and braced up with natural hexagonally inter-jointed columns made of basalt. The acclaimed Felix Mendelssohn (a celebrated romantic composer) is said to have drawn his inspiration from this mammoth cave.
