I finally visited Scotland in 2016 after being at the top of my travel list for a long time. Extensive planning went into this trip because of the prolonged winter in Scotland; there are only a few months when to visit the highlands due to snow. Additionally, getting around Scotland is challenging as an independent traveler. The cars are small, and the roads are very narrow (plus they drive on the opposite side than the U.S.), so making a self-driving trip takes some skill.  Also, since there are no direct flights from the Washington, D.C area, I flew into Dublin, Ireland, then connected via a small jet to Edinburgh, Scotland. However, despite these challenges, Scotland was truly magical and worth the effort to get there. The picturesque landscapes of mountains and lakes, the romantic ruins of castles, and the quaint small towns make for a memorable trip.
