I woke up one morning and decided to go to Scotland for the week!

This is one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in yet. The down side is no elevator and many, many stairs. The bedrooms are perfect, with a great view of the city. Bathrooms are like locker rooms, but the water is hot. There's a nice common area with movies and pool tables. It's a 5-minute walk to the castle. Helpful staff, discounts at the cafe next door. Other neighbors include a Pizza Hut, corner store, bars, and a T-shirt place.
I hate whisky, and this tour just proved it. Its a fun time though. Not only do you learn about the whisky but the country as well. They even have a ride! Very high-tech displays and a good amount of walking, sitting, and riding. Very nice staff. 'Free' sample and glass. At the end is a nice gift store and bar.
It's a small tour in a comfortable bus. In mine, there were people from all over the world. The guides were great, and we listened to traditional music during the drives. Plenty of stops for photos and such. Also a chance to go on a boat tour. I suggest it. Great trip. We went to a cafe for morning coffee and got to pet a cooooo, aka cow, named Hamish. Also saw the Monty Python French taunters castle. Highlands are beautiful too.
