Hi Tracey,

you chose a great destination. :)

Many of the best memories for me have always been landscape views out of the beaten track. So - try to explore a bit off the main roads.

I love the Isle of Mull (including the side roads), had a great day with a boat trip to the Isle of Staffa. Maybe in your two weeks you could even explore the Outer Hebrides or the Orkneys.

Two special things for the big towns - my highligh of Edinburgh is the Camera obscura just next to the castle. You can make a fun sightseeing tour via this old, old technique. And in Glasgow I have the Willow tea rooms on my list (and still not managed to visit them). And there is the House for an art lover to visit (which I liked very much) - all things if you are interested in architecture.

Another thing I did not manage to do yet - there is the chance to tour the Loch Lomond on the boat of the postman. I don't have a real schedule, you might have to ask the local tourist authorities.

Add lovely scenery, some whiskey and obscure meals to that - and I hope you will have wonderful two weeks in Scotland.
