Useful information to prepare a holiday in Scotland

 

Maybe the following addresses can help you with your own travel preparations to Scotland. Of course, this list is not a complete list of all information available, but it offers a good starting point. All addresses are given as of February 2, 2018.
I am not affiliated in any way with any of these pages/companies, nor am I compensated in any way for mentioning them here. The only reason I am listing them on my blog is that I was satisfied with their services/information provided.
