Though I started visiting Scotland for vacation over 20 years ago, subsequent trips were more like coming home.
The best way to truly feel Scotland, appreciate the land, laugh with the people, and understand the history, is to rent a car and drive out of the cities, along the two-lane roads (though some bridges may still be one lane).
Follow the roads in and out of small towns, stopping for lunch at a pub and taking a wee walk along main street where a bakery or woolen shop might catch your fancy.
Wander some more as the road takes you past deep lochs cast in shadow by the ever-present clouds and eventually a sign pointing the way to a castle will crop up. Follow it and explore the ruins or take the tour as you step back in history.
When the gloaming sets in, look for a bed and breakfast and stop for the night. Visit with the owners and have a wee dram before requesting a “full breakfast” for the next morning. As you lay your head down, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the sheep on the hillside. That’s how to truly feel Scotland.
