I like listening to people's opinions about Scotland. It's great to hear positive things but it's also important to find out about the things people didn't like.
It's true that many shops close at 6 though supermarkets stay open until 10 in bigger towns. In the summer, souvenir shops are open until late.
I suppose Scotland is more expensive than some other countries but I don't think the difference is that great. Eating out is pricey if you order a bottle of wine. The entrances to all the places that tourists visit can add up.
It can be difficult to find accommodation in small towns and villages if you arrive in the evening without having booked a place. There are many tourist offices which help you to find a place to stay all over the country. Many tourists choose to go to a Bed and Breakfast - most of them are pretty decent and affordable.
Getting around Scotland is a problem. There are some wonderful train journeys but it's not the best way to see the country. You really have to rent a car to reach most places.
And it's true - the weather, even in summer, can be awful. You are lucky if you escape the rain. You shouldn't go to Scotland expecting to get a tan.
According to the guy in the video, the Scots are the best people in Europe. Who am I to disagree? Seriously, most Scots are welcoming and try to be of help to tourists.
If you are into outdoor sports, Scotland is the ideal place to visit.
The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful.
I consider myself very lucky to call Scotland my home.
