How to get there
Best time to go
Good to know
- Though Scotland has a reputation for serving adventurous foods such Haggis and deep fried mars bars, we’ve found Scotland to be super vegetarian friendly!
- You can experience 4 seasons in one day so be prepared to take a lot of different types of clothes and layer up!
- We’ve had some of the worst 4G coverage EVER while traveling through Scotland, especially on the Isle of Skye. Normally I use my phone as a GPS to navigate or look something up but coverage on Skye is scarce and WiFi isn’t available in every restaurant. Thus, we prepared our daytrips in our rented cottage where WiFi was available and had to DIY on the road with a good ol’ road map
