Scotland

Scotland has it all! I fell in love with this magnificent country on my first visit to ski at Glenshee in 1993. From crumbling castles to pristine beaches to unspoilt islands to munro bagging some of the 282 peaks to the 109 whisky distilleries to fly fishing and not to mention the famous North Coast 500 and its stunning coastal scenery. There is truly something for everyone.
