Hi Babe,

I've made the link work - links are actually allowed here, just not promotional ones. I think it's fine to point people to tourism board websites.

Cheers, Peter

Hi there,

I´m French, living in Spain and I spend the greatest 5 months of my life in Glasgow when I was an erasmus student there. It´s just a must. Great people, nightlife, entertainment, landscapes... everything! I love it.

Do come to bony Scotland mates, it´s all worth seeing.

Oh yeah, I loved Edinburgh! I think it is one of the loveliest places in the UK. It was really brilliant from the visit to the castle, the walk along the Royal Mile, I liked the National Gallery too. I like how all the building are black with soot (and no, they should NOT clean it up), just brings you back several hundred years. Though I must say the new Scottish Parliament building (the ultra-modern one) is such a monstrosity. Go to Edinburgh everyone!

Excellent topic babe!!

Scotland is a wonderful place - the people are what make it the way it is. They are so friendly and we have a wonderful sense of humor. Ok, it might rain a lot but it gives us all character! One word of warning tho - never challenge a scottish person to a drinking game/competition - you will lose!!!

Hey, good one babe!! I'm from Inverness and know the rest of scotland quite well too. its an amazing place! Come to the north west coast if you want hill walking, beautiful scenery, gorgeous beaches (no sunbathing i'm afraid, its bloody cold!), good surf (Thurso) and much much more. You'll find the people really friendly and hospitable. Come to Scotland!!! If anyone ever wants information on Inverness or the Highlands and Islands, let me know.

Liking the Patriotism going on here, maybe we should start a Travellerspoint Tartan Day! Maybe not as up-market as Jack McConnell and Sir Sean in New York but the jobs a good 'un!

Happy Vagabonding to all those on our chilly shores!
