Author : stephen berry

Scotland has a vibrant tourist industry with several tourist agencies across the country offering attractive packages to the vistors who come from across the world. These packages range from one day Edinburgh city tour or Glasgow city tour to five day city tours. Such is the influx of the tourists along with their travel demands that most of Scotland's sightseeing services conduct tours every day of the week. The tours take the tourist through both Edinburgh and Glasgow to the highlands, the islands, and many other places. The tours are mostly in groups, though offer a great deal of choices and flexibility. The groups are not very large and guides offer guidance throughout the journey.

The typical tours are conducted in comfortable Coaches with big panoramic windows (3 out of 4 seats are window seats) and stereo systems to provide entertainment. The full sized reclining seats (with seatbelts) and more leg room are the chief attractions for the travelers. The accommodation, lodging choices are aplenty as the tourists could go in for the B&B schemes or the posh hotels. There are several budget hotels which also offer Edinburgh city tour and Glasgow city tour.

One could also plan travel during Edinburgh city tour along the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond in the northern Highlands. These constitute Scotland's largest loch and it derives its name from the mountain Ben Lomond on the eastern shore. The natural beauty of the region is very inspiring and the variety of it is truly breath taking. Hence, one is in awe to see the dramatic changes in the stretch so that at one place you have the flat fertile plains of the Lowlands followed with sparkling lochs, huge rugged mountain tops and green wooded glens. When you climb an altitude of over 1000ft, you witness a landscape covered by heather and peat-bogs, which are speckled with dozens of lochs, forming landscape with unique beauty.

If you intend to travel westwards during the Edinburgh city tour, Stirling castle is a must see. This area of Scotland is of great historical importance as several fighting and warfare once had taken place here. Stirling castle was earlier called 'Key to Scotland', and it was here that the famous William Wallace defeated the English army in the historical battle of 1297. The castle has a stunning beauty and the guides at leisure explain all the history associated with the place.

Glasgow situated on the River Clyde is Scotland's largest city. It derives its name from the Brythonic glas cu (compare modern Gaelic Glaschu), which means green hollow, and usually romantically translated as "the dear green place". Glasgow city tour is available in different parts of the city and there are able guides to show a traveler around in the city. The city is a fine mix of traditional touches and modernism. By the locals, the city is still called and since the 1980s, Glasgow has extensively revamped for a make over in its image and its architecture.
