Glasgow or Edinburgh? Which should you see? What about the best time to visit? And what is the weather in Scotland going to be like anyway? One more thing: what is the tipping etiquette in Scotland?

Touring in Scotland

A trip to Scotland for one week? On that link there's just one suggestion. And you know where the classic Scotland tour goes? We describe it there - though that's not the same as saying you should definitely do it! 

Cities or countryside? Sure, everyone loves the Isle of Skye but there are plenty of off the beaten track options in Scotland's islands that are worth discovering. And check out some of our suggestions for where to stay in Scotland.

Whisky, Porridge, Flowers! Even more to discover

See? I told you there was lots to discover. Perhaps you are going to explore Scotland out of doors - so you'd enjoy my Scotland outdoors check-list. Or discover some of our own Scottish flowers.

And I haven't even started on some of the questions that clients have asked over the years...like 'what are neeps?' And as for my view on making porridge...
