Away from the whining bagpipes, ubiquitous tartan fabrics and the strange sight of men in kilts, Scotland is a mystical and enchanting land punctuated by lochs, mythical monsters and rugged natural scenery.

This driving adventure across Scotland started in Inverness in the Highlands and zig-zagged down to the Scottish capital Edinburgh for the Fringe with stops at Loch Ness, Fort Augustus and Spean Bridge.
Glasgow is a masculine city with uncompromising buildings as rugged as any Scottish mountain. A walk along the River Clyde moves you from Granite to Metallic with a series of modern silvery buildings.
