Tips for Your Trip through Scotland

3 Tips for Your Trip through Scotland

Scotland is a fascinating country. Everyone has seen movies like Braveheart with the typical Scottish landscape which offers so much. If you plan on going to Scotland though you need to be prepared for a few things.


The weather in Scotland is strange, at least for people not living in Scotland. It is pretty much unpredictable and you never know when it’s going to rain or when the sun is going to shine.

Here is my tip: Because the weather is so unpredictable and changes so quickly you need to be prepared for everything. Always carry around some additional rain cloths even if the sun is shining at the moment.

We once went to visit a nearby coral beach. The weather was nice and it didn’t look like it was going to rain at all. We arrived at the place and the weather was still nice. But on our way back to the car it started raining. So be prepared.


If you want to drive through Scotland using a bus then be sure to have everything planned out and to also book all the bus tickets earlier.

The reason is pretty simple. We once tried to get from Edinburgh to Glasgow using the bus. We went to the bus station and got our tickets. Then we lined up to get into the bus and the guy in front of us turned to us and asked how much we payed. We told him that we payed around 6-7 pounds and he started smiling. He then showed us his ticket and the price on it: It was one pound.

Book buses two days earlier and you will save lots of money. The problem for us was that we never knew where we were going to go.

Visit Pubs

I know this might sound like a standard statement but I got to say that we really had a lot of fun in pubs. First of all the Scottish people are very open and it’s easy to talk to them. Secondly if you visit a country then you should also get to know part of their culture.

A few days before we had to leave we went to one of the oldest pubs in Scotland, it was called the Moulin Inn and was near Pitlochry. We had the best time there talking to some other people. It was really great.
