Visiting Cities In Scotland

Planning a visit to Scotland should definitely involve scheduling in trips to the country’s cities. They all contain blends between ancient and modern architecture and culture in a manner that resembles the most exceptional areas of Istanbul. Scotland’s cities also all offer numerous ways to enjoy your time in each of them. If you are in Glasgow then I would definitely recommend going to an Old Firm derby between Rangers and Celtic as these are always entertaining and fiery encounters due to the historic rivalry between the two teams. However, I understand that this might not be everyone’s cup of tea and don’t worry, there’s plenty to do and see beyond just going to a football match (though I would certainly suggest it whether you’re a football fan or not). Instead you could visit the Burrell collection – donated to the city by the deceased collector at the turn of the last century – that contains a range of painters from Degas to Cezanne. The Museum of Modern Art is also certainly worth your time – it is the most visited modern art gallery in the whole of the United Kingdom outside of London – and you could also take a wander through the city centre where you’ll find a myriad of restaurants, shops, cafes, pubs and clubs.

If you are planning to visit Glasgow then I would suggest that you stay in a central Glasgow hotel as this will give you best access to the city’s highlights. In fact, this is probably the case no matter which city you stay in throughout Scotland, for example, if you are visiting Aberdeen then I would also recommend staying in an Aberdeen city centre hotel. And if you actually are staying in Aberdeen, make sure that you schedule in a visit to the Glenfiddich distillery to sample just a few of their single malts. You should also go on the thirteen-castle walk that meanders through some lush countryside and various spectacular ruins. Aberdeen is the city that Annie Lennox was born and raised in as well as being the place that Lawrence of Arabia retired to following his exploits in north Africa during the First World War, so it’s clearly got something about it.
