Narrow streets and underground streets in Edinburgh

Landscape in the Highlands.

Scotland thrives in any season. So pack rainproof clothes and go. In the capital, Edinburgh, Joan K. Rowling wrote the “Harry Potter” stories, where there are dark, narrow streets and underground passages through which ghosts walk. And here some days you can hear a bagpipe player on every corner. With the haunting tones of Scottish music in your ears, the journey continues into the heart of the Highlands and to a one-of-a-kind sporting event: the Highland Games.

Popular Highland Games

The Highland Games take place almost everywhere in the Scottish Highlands during the summer months, the most famous being in Bremer. Nearby is Balmoral, the summer residence of the British royal family. And almost every year the queen comes for an hour.

This makes her almost mystical and certainly feeds off the legend of the monster “Nessie”. But true or not, one thing is certain: Everyone who approaches Loch Ness looks around to see if they don’t suddenly see a giant sea monster.
