Perth, Tay River

The good, the plaid, and the whisky

It's said redheads have a reputation for fiery temperaments; in Scotland the same could be said of the entire people, or even the land itself. Somehow, both the land and those who live on it manage to be simultaneously handsome and tough as nails, like a burly highlander in a fine tartan kilt. Fierce, proud, rugged, and beautiful, the land that inspired a thousand songs dips and weaves like a Celtic jig. Scotland's rugged beauty is postcard-famous: lochs, glens, rocky cliffs, and rolling hills are punctuated by medieval castles and stone churches. Nor is it all bagpipes and haggis – Scottish cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh seamlessly blend the ancient and modern, and the music and personalities are strong and distinctive as their whiskies.
