Scotland may often be famed for its testing golf course and its
smooth whiskies but surely its greatest assets are the historical cities, mammoth lochs and
and imposing highlands. Below are just some of the Scottish travel highlights submitted by you, our readers...

"St Andrews golf course - playing my final shot into the 18th green with at least 100 visitors & members watching on... probably the scariest moment of my life but I got it on the green!... and only about 30 feet from the pin!"
"Literary tours, pub tours, ghost tours and festivals galore, the City of Edinburgh has it all for those inclined to explore the local culture and its rich history. I'd recommend the hotels along or off Princes Street to get stunning views of the castle. And do take a walking tour as there are lots of interesting places near the city centre all within reach of each other. For a break, a cuppa in the Princes Street gardens at the base of the castle can't be beat."
"A city that is easy to walk around night or day and is stunningly beautiful from any view point. It is very easy to get lost in the history and culture of the city. I recommend the ghost tours for a experience that is a bit different from the norm."

"Edinburgh is home to a number of fantastic hotels, restaurants, museums, clubs and entertainment venues. it is one of the richest historical cities in scotland, there are a number of tours and historical places that show off its vibrant past."
"Edinburgh is a great city to visit - as long as you've got good legs. It's a very compact city with everything you need within walking distance and even a huge park in the middle of the city that's so big you'll think you're out in the countryside."
