My visit to Scotland this year was amazing. Just so you know- Doune Castle, Scotland: The Game of Thrones Pilot was Filmed Here. One of the most important locations to see may be Doune Castle. Located in Doune, Scotland, this was the location that served as Winterfell during the unforgettable pilot episode of the first season of Game of Thrones.
One thing I also noticed was that People are really friendly in Scotland, people were willing to take my pictures with a smile on their faces. People are also happy to help direct you when you’re lost, unlike London were no one cares! Passionate and innovative country and you’ll see that clearly everywhere you go.
I took an airplane from London Luton airport to Edinburgh airport, the flight was about an hour. I also visited Glasgow. The trip took approximately 1 hour. Train journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh typically last 50 minutes during the day.
Also, the houses looked quite different from the houses in England. The buildings in Scotland have different colours, the colour of the bricks used in making their houses is different. It was really fun walking around the beautiful city.
Scotland, most northerly of the four parts of the United kingdom, occupying about one-third of the island of Great Britain. The name Scotland derives from the Latin Scotia, land of the Scots, a Celtic people from Ireland who settled on the west coast of Great Britain about the 5th century AD.
