Trip Adviser puts Scotland in top five


The popular travel website, Trip Adviser, has put Scotland in the top-five countries for travel experience.

Loch Lomond, Skye and the West Highlands played a big part in earning the rating.

Cost Rica, New Zealand, Vietnam and Ireland were the top four with Scotland ahead of Australia, Mexico, the USA and Iceland.

This is further evidence of the success of Scottish tourism reported many times here, including these:

    I think that there has to be serious consideration given to the imposition of a visitor tax, as is now increasingly common in a number of holiday destinations. The revenue should be retained in the area visited and used to enhance infrastructure, so that the popular areas are not destroyed by the people who want to visit them.

      Yet, there they sit in the back of cars, shaking their big wally heids—–

      “Naw, ye canny hiv’ yer wee country back”, they seem to say, “It belong tae London”.

      And all the other nodding donkeys–Ruthie, Wee Wullie and Dickiebow + the *mejah*—they ALL agree with this stance. And that Scots should not have a say in this: our own constitutional future!
