As I’ve only spent 3 days in Edinburgh, I’ve decided to book a one-day tour and enjoy the others to discover and explore the city. There are lots of tour agencies that provides different and interesting itineraries and the prices vary according to what do you want to do. The one that we contacted was the Highland Explorer Tours. The itinerary was well organised and the tour guide was amazing, as gave us lots of information and historical facts, which make the trip even more exciting and interesting. The trip was accompanied by Scottish music, from the popular old songs to the currently Scottish top singers and bands.
Stirling is known as the Heart of Scotland, holding a considerable importance to the history of Scotland. His great castle has helped to give it a key place with legendary Scot’s victories. You probably remember this story in the movie ‘The Braveheart’, which is based on the story of William Wallace.
The Fort William is well-known for the simple fact that hosts the Ben Nevis – the tallest mountain in the UK. The city is also known as the outdoor capital of UK, hosting the Mountain Bike World Cup. Here you can enjoy the finest Scotch Whisky on the pubs and a trip aboard the steam train that took Harry Potter to Hogwarts.
If you want to take a boat trip to the Loch, you can get the local boat which will take you to the middle of the lake. When I was there I could realize how big it is and I could listen to all the local stories, mysteries and the investigations performed in the lake for many years. The boat has a sonar, which shows what it is underwater – just in case Nessie decides to say Hi.
