Scotland: 3 More Offbeat Things to do around Glasgow: Ayrshire, Dumfries10:39 AM
A Traveler and not a Tourist:Scotland
I often wonder what makes us travel like a tourist and not a traveler.Many of my friends have told me recently "Hey we have been to Scotland but not to the places you mentioned" and I feel great to be given an opportunity to explore and bring about to you the part of Scotland we hardly know.We often walk on the same path as everyone does missing out the soul of the country.Every country is beautiful in its own way.
My 11 days in Scotland opened up my mind to an extent that I no longer want a day or two in a country but the whole of 10-15 days to discover each and every country at my own pace.Most of us travel Europe or UK on a 10 day package covering several countries,but how many of us really get to know a country this deep.Honestly we do not know!To know more click on Visit Scotland Official Page

The great Scotland travel video
Yipee the video on Scotland is done,what a relief!This video is self shot on timer on a tripod(90%) of the times,or on assistance with general public or self handheld shot.Nothing professional,but just helping you get to know Scotland better.The last three days of my travel was discovering Edinburgh day and night,on my own and travelling solo hiking along,hopping on to buses or waiting for one.Enjoy the video folks and do not forget to comment!Scotland is a safe country,doesn't matter whether you are travelling solo or at night or with groups.
11 days just wasn't enough ,may be a month would have been,may be 6 months.But for now,as promised last week I take you through the remaining 3 things to do out of 7 offbeat things.We'll also discover a bit of Glasgow and backpack Edinburgh in the subsequent days.
1) Laggan Outdoors,Dumfries and Galloway Scotland
With breathtaking views of the mountains and the sea,you wouldn't want to miss the UK's longest zipwire,now the second longest.Spanning 820 metres,the double Zip wire allows two people to zip at the same time,next to each other.Alternative activities are arranged if the zipwire is unsuitable or the wind is high.
We tried blindfolded reverse steering jeep drive,a game where to have to drive on hills blindfolded and the mute directions were given by our partner sitting at back by tapping our shoulders in the direction opposite to the drive.It's an incredible feeling when you cannot see what lies ahead,its fun and super thrill.
Segway is easy,relaxing and thrilling.If you tried it once on the hills,you'd be hooked onto it so much that you'd wish that it goes forever.
2) Culzean Castle,Ayrshire Scotland
Culzean is one of Scotland's best loved castles.The Royal Bank of Scotland has Culzean on its pounds.With views of sea and Culzean's aesthetic history,this is one of the must visit along the coast of Ayrshire.
3) Glenapp Castle,Ayrshire Scotland
Have you ever fancied living in a castle?Like a queen for a day..and a night.Well this was where we stayed overnight,each of us having rooms as big as we could have only dreamt of.The castle is hidden in 36 acres of glorious garden and woodland on the rugged and beautiful Ayrshire coast.As everywhere else,the food is awesome and you can enjoy a four course dinner at Glenapp Castle.
