If you get a chance to visit Scotland what would you go for? Loch Ness Monster, the Scottish highlands, or the beautiful castles?
From the gorgeous scenery and rich history to the culture and the personalities of the people who live here, the unique aspects of Scotland are so appealing that it should surely be our next travel destination.
1. You get to taste whisky from five different regions.
The first thing that comes to our mind when we think of Scotland is whisky. And Scotland offers you five different types of whisky from five different regions.
Each whisky is unique in its own way. Try one from each region - Lowlands, Highlands & Islands, Islay, Speyside and Campbelltown.
2. Where else will you get to step in the chilling waters of the Scottish Loch?
Have you ever imagined diving in the icy cold lakes? They call them 'loch' in Scotland. No trip to Scotland is complete without feeling its unpleasantly cold waters. So maybe you can just dip your toes or ankle.
