I have been fascinated with Scotland for as long as I can remember. My family is from a little town called Nairn in the Scottish Highlands, and has stayed very connected to Scotland even after generations in Canada then the United States. I grew up with tartans on the wall and going to Scottish festivals at every opportunity to hear bagpipes and watch the caber toss. As I’ve grown up and had a chance to visit the place myself a number of times, that wonderful connection to the place has only grown.
The second I first stepped off the plane in Inverness, I felt something very special about the Highlands, and though I’ll talk about all of Scotland on this site, you may notice a particular fondness for the wilds of the Scottish north. There’s nothing quite like them anywhere in the world, and even today, you can get lost there and pretend you’ve passed through a portal to a simpler time.
But in our wonderment at Scotland’s natural beauty, some visitors often forget about the modernity of the cities. Glasgow in particular is one of the most stylish and forward-looking cities you’ll ever see, a hub for art and music that rivals any European capital. Edinburgh is a nice mix of the two, a 21st century city that deliberately keeps a firm hold on its history.
In short, I love Scotland and I’m here to make you love it too. More than that, I’m here to make sure your trip to Scotland is the best possible experience. If you have any questions for me about the site or anything else, please don’t hesitate to use the contact page. In the meantime, enjoy the site. Thanks so much for stopping by.
