I ended up going to my beloved NYtimes.com. I typed Scotland into the travel section and got the best overview. It explained:
|Loch Ness Monster aka Nessie|
- Scotland has amazing seafood and restaurants. It also gave a short list of the best restaurants. Fiance loves seafood and has been slowly making me appreciate it more and more.
- Teeny tiny country. It really does make more sense to look at Scotland as a whole in planning your trip because it is so small. The major cities aren't far from each other. It seems totally feasible to rent a car and road trip from region to region.
- There is a lot of deep history to explore. Castles, cathedrals, museums, William Wallace (gotta hurry up and watch Braveheart), Loch Ness monster, the list goes on.
- The end of May is the perfect time to go!
Next up, nailing down dates and looking at flights.
