History and heritage sweep Scotland, where castles and ancient relics dating back to centuries are scattered throughout. This is a testament to a past that involved internal conflicts as much as there were conflicts fighting invaders. Scotland also has a very beautiful nature reflected in its mountains, hills and islands, which makes it one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in Europe.
So, get to know the most beautiful small towns in Scotland.
The colorful shops and restaurants of Mull Island offer stunning views against green trees, black glass glass, and a gray sky (often). There is much to do in the city, such as visiting the Tobermory Museum, or an aquarium. The city is also an ideal base for exploring the island of Mull from Inner Hebrides inland Algeria.
Trade with Belgium and the Netherlands influenced the very beautiful style of houses in Pettenum with their white walls and red surfaces. One of the most active fishing villages in the Fife region, Bitnum has become busier since 1982 when the village launched its first art festival, which is now one of the most popular boutiques in Scotland. In 2013, more than 25,000 people participated in the festival – almost 25 times the town’s population.
Putrahaven is a planned village built in the nineteenth century. Its small white houses are detailed around the windows in different colors, so you feel warm and comfortable in the rugged landscape. Its port is protected, thus attracting gray seals.
Paternnahaven is also a haven for bird watchers: such as oak, clumsy, shearwater, petrels and other bird species, which are in abundance during the fall season in particular.
The trip to this wonderful fishing village will not be complete without visiting Anstruther Fish Bar – yes, this is a fish and chips shop. He has won numerous awards for his food, which he presented to the likes of Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks and Prince William.
Another award-winning place in the city is the Scottish Fisheries Museum, where you can learn about the Scottish fishing industry from prehistoric times to the present day and relax in the museum’s historic buildings.
The royal contact in this city is strong. Firstly, Balmoral Castle, once the seat of the royal family, is only a few miles from the road, and is partially open to the public when it is uninhabited. Second, Braemar Gathering: annual games that the royal family has attended, since Queen Victoria. History is rich there as well, with the 17th-century ruins of Primar Castle, and the ruins of the Kindrochit Castle dating back to the 14th century, for example.
