    Scotland is one of my favourite places to be! And while I love the amazing nature that you can find, it was Edinburgh where I really fell in love and I think if you want to experience Scottish culture it’s probably the best place to go.

    There are all sorts of incredible cafes and bakeries around, the museum of childhood is great fun (if a little creepy) and the “haunted” graveyards really pleased the teenage goth still living inside me somewhere haha. Oh and there are still places to find whisky to taste as well as getting an accidental look up some poor man’s kilt!

    I’ll have to try a spot of island hopping next time =)
