Scotland in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... Firth. That's when you really begin to realise that you shouldn't take living in Scotland for granted. Ok living up here was great and I loved it, everyone knows each other which can be annoying when people know your business. But then in your hour of need you'll always have help. But it has it downsides mainly the weather and there's not much to do. The weather - well everybody knows that it almost always rains in Scotland. There's no getting away from that fact, it is also a lot colder here than the rest of the UK. It really is a small price to pay when you have the luxury of getting snow almost every year.

I've live in the Highlands of Scotland all my life. I don't think I ever really appreciated how amazing it actually is until I grew up and went to other places. I always felt myself being drawn back home I am always going to be a country girl and I actually get nervous about ever having to move to a City. So when the time came in life to go to Uni or college I decided it just wasn't for me. (The thought of not living in a tiny town made me feel complete fear). So I carried on working and living in Evanton, Ross Shire. It was a great little town and all areas and towns round it were also great. The best thing about Evanton is Fyrish Monument which ...

People of Dooyoo As penance for spending the majority of last week feeding on the oh so tasty MaryanneH, it falls upon me to give you a tour of the West Coast of Scotland, an incredibly beautiful part of the British Isles. Now I first met MaryanneH outside her tent in Inver Coe, at the foot of Glencoe, right on the banks of Loch Leven. The Highlands of Scotland are famous for two things, having really big hills, might even call them mountains and loads of Lochs (that?s Lakes for all you English folks out there). The loch, as with any stretch of water, ... Read the complete review

There is a lot more to Scotland than bagpipes and tartan, hard as that is to believe. There are a wide variety of attractions and activities that can rival any tourist destination. Remote islands and mountains, vibrant cities, medieval castles, prehistoric sites, a large number of outdoor sports, great nightlife and some of the most tranquil hideaways to be found anywhere. The one thing we don't have is dependable weather, so if you are looking to top up your tan you are reading the wrong review. *TIP* Don't think that Scotland is a northerly region of England. Although we share the same monarch, government and currency, Scotland is a completely ... Read the complete review

This charisma I spent a week in Scotland. Up in the highlands (just off fortwilams). My family friends and me rented a large house out for charismas and the New Year. It was defiantly the highlands due to the fact the nearest shop was 20 miles away, although there was a inn just up the was. Due to where are mansion was placed we experienced there really Scottish sprit. We knew there was going to have to be a lot of planed walks as the was no near town. We thought we might get bored of walking around. But it was very much the opposed. Getting a map from a local shop to show you some walks to adventure on would be a great idea. We had one placed on the wall showing all ... Read the complete review

For some of you it might not be too apparent from watching TV and reading newspapers, but the UK actually consists of more than just "England" - shock horror eh! To the west of England there is a country whose name I can't remember such is its insignificance, I think it starts with a W. To the north-west there is a partitioned part of the island of Ireland which remains under British rule, they call it Norn Iron or something like that. It is the third of the forgotten countries that I would like to tell you about, the mysterious region to the north which is known as "Scotland". Scotland is a land of perpetual rain, little animals ... Read the complete review
