Has anyone been to Scotland before? Warfish, please chime in, and any others as well. FWIW it would be like visiting some kind of homeland -- I'm a quarter Scottish.
well have a good time but for the life of me i dont understand your logic on why you picked scotland of all places. just because they speak english? because its still in the "UK"? I dunno what that all means it almost suggests that italy and france are unstable lol. well enjoy the crap weather, horrid food and depressing scenery
