Traveling as a non tourist
My wife and I visited Scotland for my 60th birthday. To make it unique, we found a self catering cottage on a family farm in Stirling... Within a 45 mile radius, Sonja and I discovered many hidden gems from ruins to farmer markets to out of the way pubs!
We shopped at Morrison's for groceries and had morning coffee out side on the nice patio with breathtaking views of William Wallace monument and Stirling castle.
Please drop a note for other ideas and suggestions about visiting Scotland well off the beaten path!
All the best
