We stayed in Edinburgh for the first 2 nights @ a B & B. We saw the castle where Mary Queen of Scots lived. It was fascinating. Do the bus tour while there, it's about an hour or so. It will take u by all the highlights of the city. We also went to a kilt factory. They are quite expensive if u wish to purchase one, lol.

We stayed at a different town every night. We went to St. Andrews and went on the famous golf course, went to Lochness, Stirli ng where the famous battle led by William Wallace took place, also went to the Wallace Monument where his sword is on display. We went to Balmoral Castle where the English Royals stay. Scotland has so many castles. The weather was still cool, I actually brought my coat, we went in May.

The food was ok, enjoyed breakfast the most, everything else was plain meat & gravy, no salads or sides. We ate lots of fish & chips. The people are extremely friendly and they love their dogs, pretty cool.

I love Scotland.  I'm pushing for my husband to transfer there.  If you want a really nice dinner eat at the Witchery in downtown Edinburgh.  They used to hand the witches there in the old days.  I would also recommend doing the underground tour of Edinburgh.  Of course Edinburgh Castle and Balmoral Castle.  We stayed at Dalhousie Castle.  It was amazing.

Hate the weather, love the place and the people.
Never did the travel around the country thing (was always there for a short time for work).
Edinburgh and Aberdeen mostly.
But hit the local pubs at night, the people are wonderful.
And if you happen to get a good recipe for "Skirlie", share it with us.
One of my favorite side dishes there.

I was there several years ago....and loved every minute of it.  Invest in the bus tours - the castles are amazing!  And no, they do not wear anything under those kilts.  We went to a wonderful show in a castle one night and saw all the great dancing, entertainment and had a dinner that included haggis - and I actually ATE IT!  (suggestion.....don't even try it). 
You will love Scotland.
