It is the time of year for vacation again. I am going to go over some of the best vacation spots in the Scotland area on this post to help you with your vacation.
The ancient capital of Scotland. This Beautiful city is on the river banks of the Tay. There are many wonderful things to do in Perth. The Perth Concert Hall has events for all from comedians to m with comfortable seating and great sound quality. Also there is a great little cafe inside. Also in Perth is the Black Watch Castle. It is a museum of photographs, weapons and military items. There is also a gift shop that has many unique items for sale from statues and dirks to jewelry and clothing. From there you can go to the Brankly Garden. This national trust property has rhododendrons to poppies to violets to trillium. It is a small garden which most people’s visit last about an hour or so. If you do go make sure to wear the proper shoe attire due to it usually being slippery. Last but not least make sure to visit the souvenir shop. They have great teas and cakes for purchase.
2. Isle of Skye
Also know as “The Cloud” or the “Island Of the Mist” there is no other place on the planet that is as romantic or mysterious as the Isle of Skye. As the folklore claims that there are fairies and giants that have made the various landmarks around the area. One of the biggest draws to the area is the Dunvegan Castle. While there do not miss the Tomb of Alisdair Crotach, it is near the St. Clement’s Church. It is a beautiful site to see. Last time I was there I ran into a husband and wife team while off promoting there website to some lawyers they took a break to go to the church. As they told me that it was one of the most beautiful places that they had ever seen.
Known as the best shopping outside of London. It has a rich local history and heritage. It is a compact city which make it easy to explore the surrounding area. Some of the areas of interest include the Glasgow Cathedral. This medieval cathedral is about a 15 min walk from the city center and was built in between the 13th and 15th century. At night is is one of the most beautiful sites to see. Another area of interest is the Glasgow City Chambers. This is in the center of George Square. Has to be one of the most impressive buildings in the Glasgow city. Queen Victoria opened it in 1888 and is the headquarters of the city councils. There is a image of Victoria on the building and is referred to as Glasgow’s Statue of Liberty. Or even seeing a show at the Theater Royal which has shows from musicals to comedians to the Scottish Ballet. Everybody that I have every talked to says the same thing. Everything about the theater is great from the sound quality to the seating.
Next month when I get back from my vacation I will start to talk about the “off the beaten path vacation spots.” So if you are looking for a vacation area that not many people know much about come on by next month!
