Travelogue Scotland, 5 tips for a short trip to Scotland
Scotland has a bad reputation, especially when it comes to weather and cuisine. I was taught better during my last short trip to Edinburgh and the Black Isle in the Highlands. Here are my five tips for having a great time in Scotland!
Learn English again
Even my friend, who is a native of England, often has trouble understanding the Scottish dialect. That was a little consolation to me, because sometimes I didn't understand a word of what my friendly counterpart replied. But do not despair: over time you can hear yourself in the Scottish singsong and understand it better and better. So it can be worthwhile to learn some Scottish English every day in preparation for your trip, for example by listening to Scottish radio. What you can learn right now in relation to English in Scotland is the word “wee”. While this word is associated with a body fluid in the rest of the kingdom, in Scotland it means "small".

Dolphins on the Black Isle
Even without its famous visitors, the Black Isle in the Highlands would be worth a trip: the whole peninsula is incredibly picturesque! And the dolphins that come to eat daily in the bay of Fortrose and Rosemarkie make this place very special.
We stayed at Fortrose's campsite for three days - including a sea view! Every time we've walked along the beach to the point where the currents are particularly favorable for hunting and eating, we've seen dolphins! Up to eight animals at a time. I didn't want to believe it beforehand, but they were really there and enchanted me with the well-known "dolphin effect"!
Breathe in the highland air
Ever since the legendary film "Highlander" starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, everyone is familiar with the Scottish Highlands. Now the Highlands extend over an area of over 25,000km³ and we didn't really know where to start. In the end we spent a nice couple of days in the Cairngorms. The national park with its mountains and lakes is a popular holiday destination for domestic and foreign tourists. Due to its size, it is spread out nicely and we hardly met any other people on our hikes and discovery tours. I particularly remember a small “tearoom” (British equivalent of our cafés): The Potting Shed. What makes the tea room an insider tip are, in addition to the award-winning cakes, the lovingly designed tree nursery and nursery.
With this in mind, I wish everyone who is planning a trip to Scotland a wonderful time and hope that my tips have given us one or the other stimulus!
