Best place to visit in Scotland?
I live in Scotland, so I am asking more out of curiosity than anything else... But where, in your opinion, is the best place to visit in Scotland, and why? I live in Glasgow, and I find it hard to accept that people want to travel thousands of miles to come here! Loch Lomond or Loch Ness, perhaps, but the cities are dire!
We visited Scotland in 2009. I totally loved it and want to return again. We stayed in the highlands - you can read about our experience at:

I also enjoyed the cities, but agree with you that there are more beautiful places to see.
We loved the Scottish countryside - camping by Loch Ness as well as exploring other areas . We will visit Edinburgh during the festival that is on in August .
We recently visited Scotland and loved the country and the places we visited. We stayed in Edinburgh and visited many places in Edinburgh including the castle and other places such as Loch Lomond, Deep Sea world etc. Also visited a friend's place in Maybole, a small town in South East of Glasgow, which was also so beautiful.
I never grow tired of Scotland. I consider the weather a little hard to bear at times ... okay, I actually consider the weather very hard to bear a lot of the time ... but I love the architecture in the cities and the landscape all over the country.
In Edinburgh I enjoy the walk from the Kings Theatre down the Links and through the Meadows. Having that beautiful green space in the centre of a city is magical - and the kids' play area along the way is one of the best I've seen anywhere in the world. I also enjoy the climb up to Arthur's Seat.
Yes, I've been to Loch Lomond and camped at Loch Ness. I haven't spent as much time in Glasgow as elsewhere but most of the cities in Scotland have such brilliant character and history. Many parts of the world are very drab and boring compared to beautiful Scotland.
I agree, the weather is miserable! I'll be going to edinburgh in a few days, so I may take those walks you mentioned, thanks!
Did you walk from the Kings Theatre down to the park, sparkleyfinger? Or climb up to Arthur's Seat?
I didn't actually get the chance! Forgot the tickets to the gig I was going to, had to go back for them. Following day was miserable weather wise... Next time I'm sure :-)
I loved Edinburgh. A very medieval city, with a LOT to do.
Unfortunately the weather in Scotland is not the greatest, but that is just how it is I guess.
Would love to visit the highland
