Convince me not to travel to Scotland (as a European) this summer.

Convince me not to travel to Scotland (as a European) this summer. Edinburgh seems like the most beautiful city in northern Europe, there are hundreds of castles waiting to be explored, the people seem sovlful as frick and you can camp wherever you want.

    Scottish people are crackheads and more violent than the average resident of the British Isles (up there with NI). While it's worse in Glasgow, Edinburgh isn't much better.

    Discount the whole of August in Edinburgh because of the fringe. It's tolerable as a local but as a tourist, you will not be able to find a place to stay, even at 10x usual prices. Anywhere you want to visit will be crowded to the point of not having an inch of pavement to stand on in a lot of places. Rest of the summer, the weather is shit and it's still unbelievably overcrowded. It's shit value as a tourist too, prices are ridiculous. If you want castles, go to Northumberland. If you want the people, go to Glasgow. If you want camping and scenery, go up North. I do love living here and quality of life is great but being a tourist in the summer here would be hell.

    Fringe season already covered. Edinburgh is very nice when the weather isn’t shite, which it can be at any time. Paradoxically Glasgow is better to live in but less there for tourists

    Castles are either toy town maintained tourist sites like Edinburgh castle or isolated ruins. You also get duns and brochs in very rural areas. Some shit lasts. If you like old crap there’s a lot of it.

    You mentioned soulful natives. Lol. Lmao, even. The reason all the nice stuff is mikes away is because the locals wreck anything they can stagger to while far gone in drink. Also why all the cool guys spend their free time in the countryside as there’s frick all else to do. Generally based people if you aren’t a dick. Don’t go on about your Scottish great grandfather nobody cares

    Camping isn’t quite anywhere you want but once you’re away from fields and houses it pretty much is. That’s based not gonna lie. Area around Loch Lomond has old style rules as drunk Glaswegians ruined it for everyone else

    bad weather, bad food, ugly women. Anything you'd be interested in seeing would be 1/3 the price and 3 times better in Czech.

      People in Edinburgh are scum; otherwise OP has the right idea. It really is a magical city, I lived there 2 years and it never got old. Just avoid all the bars on the Royal Mile, they're curated to the tastes of Americans, and on Rose Street, they're curated to the tastes of c**ts.
      Not sure where you're thinking of camping though, unless you are planning a hike in addition to the city visit.

      1/3 the price except you have to pay for literally everything in Prague. In Edinburgh almost all public buildings and museums are free to enjoy, except the Scott Monument.

        When my wife and I went to Czech, we drove around the countryside in a rental car that cost $15/day and hiked to free castles and drank the best beer I've ever had in my life for $1.50. You can rent a giant Airbnb in places like Czesky Krumlov for $50 a night. We ended up saving so much on food and rooms in Czech that you don't even notice the occasional cost of an $8 museum ticket. A comparable room in Glasgow would be triple. Beers would cost triple. Rental cars are triple the price. The food is only about double in Glasgow what it is in Prague.

    explored is quite a grand word. most castles are ruins and have nothing to explore, some are tourist destinations and are interesting because they charge entry for upkeep.

    Scotland has the only women in the world arguably worse than even English women. You know the stereotype of the fat ugly American redneck? Those people are all Ulster Scots. Also, just like their US cousins they have a massive problem with heroin.

      A nice crisp cold sunny day in Autumn is lovely but you’re more than likely to get dark grey clouds and drizzle that makes you want to throw yourself off a mountain. Rule no.1 about Scotland is you can rely on the weather to be unreliable.

    Scotsman here.

    Edinburgh is definitely worth a visit. It has a lot of historical charm and a classyness about it. I’d avoid August and December (the Christmas markets at Princes Street Gdns) it’s uncomfortably filled with tourists to what feels like bursting point but if that’s your thing go ahead.

    Shamefully I’ve never really travelled much in my own country. I’ve never been to the Highlands but I have been to rural areas on the coasts and they are very pretty especially if you get lucky and there’s some nice weather. Castles and country estates are our big selling point but like I said I haven’t had much experience of visiting them.

    As for Glasgow and other cities. Well I’m from Glasgow and in all honesty I don’t recommend coming here to stay even for a short while. A passing visit is more than enough especially if you like football (you can visit the 3 big stadiums) and I’d also recommend Kelvingrove Musuem. I suppose parts of the city centre have retained some nice Victorian architecture but beyond that it’s not worth it. My city is dirty, filled with litter and it’s lost a lot of it’s earthy charm in recent years thanks to a massive influx of third world migrants, the same thing that plagues other European cities.
