Scotland is awesome. My sister went to school at St. Andrews, and I went out there to visit her and tour around about 4-5 yrs ago. Great place. We explored castles, towns, cities, wind blasted landscapes and lochs, went to a distillery, etc. Weather was typically Scottish with lots of pissing rain (it was April). Perfect drinking weather.
The culture is really vibrant, people are very nice (even though i'm a lowly american). Love the castles, and the whisky there is far better than any blended whiskey stateside
