Of all the countries in the United Kingdom, one of the largest territories is Scotland. It is a land filled with rich history and culture. In fact, you will still find remnants of a grand history in the form of various castles and fortresses spread all throughout the nation. If you are ever in this side of the UK, here are some of the destinations to explore:
Your trip would not be complete without ever visiting the capital. Both the Old and New Towns hold UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Some of the must-see places to visit include the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Royal Mile, Our Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh Castle, and Zoo. This is by far the most visited tourist destination in the country.
Aside from being the second largest city in the nation, it is also the second most visited next to Edinburgh. If you have a penchant for Victorian architecture, you will be pleased to find that there are still plenty of structures that bear this design. Of course, your trip would not be complete without visiting the Burrell Collection, Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow Cathedral, and Science Centre.
The name of the city means “Mouth of the River Ness” and is where the famous Loch Ness allegedly resides. It is for this reason that plenty of tourists visit this city in order to a) hopefully catch a glimpse of the creature or b) find out whether if the stories are true or not. Nevertheless, the landscape in itself is breathtaking and majestic.
In order to be able to witness these majestic structures, you must first know how to get there. Most of these fortresses are located in secluded areas. If you are from remote parts of Australia, you can start your journey by booking flights to Sydney that go directly to the UK. From there, you can ride various vehicles for public transport, such as buses, coaches, and trains. Just take note of the routes so that you will not get lost.
With that said, have a great trip in Scotland!
