Scotland

Here you will find an overview of all my reports and travel tips for Scotland.

Among other things, it's about a road trip on the legendary North Coast 500 with tent and rental car, tips for the Orkney Islands and the Isle of Skye as well as unforgettable wildlife encounters with the very small (damn Midges!) and very large animals, the Basking Sharks, and the cutest Reindeer in the world.

And of course, my favorite places in Edinburgh are not missing: the eerily beautiful Greyfriars Cemetery and the Tidal Island and Lost Place Cramond.

Most of the articles were written on my trip to Scotland in summer 2020. The summer when Covid-19 made traveling something very special.
