Scottish countryside continues to inspire


We are in the middle of the Scottish summer. At this time of year, many Scots fly off to warmer places in southern Europe, while our own countryside and cultural attractions receive visitors from all over the world.

The Edinburgh Festival in August is an obvious reason to visit the stunning capital city, but Scotland's hills, glens, mountains, rivers, lochs and wildlife provide a breath-taking combination that has helped to build the country's reputation as a world-class tourist destination.

Indeed, last week, Russian oil magnate and owner of Chelsea football club Roman Abramovich spent several days cycling around Scotland's west coast and Western Isles and picking up some souvenir bottles of whisky along the way. It is telling that a man of Mr. Abramovich's considerable means should choose Scotland as a holiday destination, but he is not alone in appreciating the country's beauty and amenities.

The late award-winning comedian Robin Williams also found great peace in the Scottish Highlands, which he visited with fellow comedian, Billy Connolly, while a number of British musicians and models are reported to have spent recent holidays at the Craigellachie Hotel in the heart of the Speyside region, famous for its wide variety of whiskies.


A number of attractions throughout the country are enjoying increased publicity thanks to the blockbuster new TV series Outlander, which is set in Scotland. Many of the locations are available for tourists to visit, some of which can be included in your itinerary with Palmerston House Educational Services.
