    I don't know about Ireland but for the time that you're in Scotland I recommend seeing Stirling Castle for the excellent history on view.
    Other places to see would be:
    Loch Lomand
    Glasgow
    Edinburgh Castle
    Edinburgh itself - Ha, ha that goes without saying, Edinburgh seems to be the tourist hotspot of Scotland.
    Also if you travel outside of urban Scotland into the rural areas availible then you want to take a look at the various hills that can be walked such as the Campsie Hills.
    Glengoyne distillery is popular too, it's only worth seeing if you like whiskey though. It's about twenty to thirty miles outside of Glasgow in the direction of Stirling.

    hey, you are going to my home, thats great news

    well, there are many things to see and do in ireland,
    of course there is a lot of beautiful architecture in dublin such as the customs house



    st patricks cathedral

    dublin castle and the list goes on

    most of the museums are free to enter, including the national art and history museums

    of course trinity library and go to irish pubs

    if you have time to travel around ireland there are daytrips to glendalough where you can see a round tower and other very old irish buildings



    its in wicklow where i am from and is called the garden of ireland and rightly so , but november is cold and dark so go early

    if you can travel a bit farther you should see the rock of cashel in tipperary
    it is one of my favorite places in ireland and it is historically one of the most important castles in ireland, without that castle ireland might be a viking nation today



    closer to dublin is Newgrange, which is a fantasic place and they say its 5000 years old - the oldest building in europe



    further away on the west coast there ar the cliffs of moher



    even yoda has visited there apparently


    there are other places of course, i dont have time to name them all
    but the Curragh is famous for racehorse and there is a japanese garden there
    its also where many scenes from braveheart and saving private ryan were filmed

    kilkenny is a beautiful city with an old castle and where i went to school

    also bunratty castle


    galway is famous for being the friendliest city in ireland

    youll be able to see many traditional thatched cottages evebn today




    and on a cold winter evening if you dont know what to do you should check out the - arthouse cinema , even if you dont watch a movie the atmosphere in the glass roofed courtyard is great and the food is pretty reasonable

    you should go to bewleys oriental cafe for tea or coffee, not the one on grafton street though as it has gone a bit upmarket
    bewleys is an irish instituiona nd there ued to be a branch in harajuku
    sadly it is now an irish pub

    temple bar is the dublin tourist spot and is quite cool but a bit more expensive than other places

    irish food is nothing to brag about so please try the many foreign food retaurants

    if you like chocolate, butlers could well be the most delicious in the world, so whatever you dont miss out, and the prices are reasonable too

    ireland has become a little expensive though so bring plenty of cash or eat supermarket food

    well, enjoy, all who are going to ireland

    I've been meaning to travel Ireland for sooo long now, it's quite sad I couldn't get to it yet.


    The Cliffs of Moher look very impressive. I love great cliffs. There is something so very primal and simple to them that attracts me I think.


    Just added another point on my travel list. :)

    i have been very excited to visit scotland after reaching this post
    Stirling’s history is probably one of the most famous in the world, especially since the major motion picture ‘Braveheart’, starring Mel Gibson, was released.

    After reading your posts, it seems that you guys have such great interest in traveling. Now I am going to talk about my Scotland tour before two years ago on my sister's birthday, We enjoyed very much there, Scotland offers us many of the places to explore. I always prepare to explore different places around the World.

    Guys, I think all of you have huge information about travelling. I want to visit Scotland and Ireland in the next month. But I have no information about them. Will anybody like to share some pictures of the both destinations with me? I need some suggestions about popular places so that I make my plan for visiting it. Waiting for cool replies.
