Hello, I am planning a trip to Scotland in the summer to visit my friend. She is a university student, and we want to take the summer holiday to travel the highlands. I know there are landmarks and wonders that every visitor should see, but what I am really interested in is making connections with people who live there. I love traveling and learning about cultures and am interested in visiting a few small, friendly farm towns in the highlands. I am a small town person myself and feel most comfortable walking into a pub to talk to people about their livelihood and the histories. I would love any suggestions for great towns to visit, and a few tips for possibly getting to know the locals (tourist behaviors to avoid).
