Be prepared for all types of weather during your visit. Bring a set of clothing for every season, and make sure you have an umbrella for the unexpected rainstorm.

The Food

A Scottish meal is delicious and something you must experience. Everything from haggis to tatties and neeps is traditional Scottish fare that tourists must try. Also visit the local tea houses for traditional afternoon tea served in style.

Vehicles in City Centre
