Harrison Dean Baker, Fall 2016 Participant
The buses are expensive (your student ID gets you a discount not free fare) and I would suggest investing in the monthly pass. Also, if you plan on traveling by train a lot get a 16-25 railcard, its 30 pounds, but you get 1/3 off almost all rail tickets.

My favorite part of this experience was how open and willing the Scottish people are to accepting you into their culture. They love sharing everything about the Scottish culture and heritage and love hearing about the North American culture as well. It was not uncommon for a Scottish person to strike up a conversation with you at the local pub and end up telling you tons of their stories. Along with this, they would share the best things to do in Scotland, many of which you would never hear about on travel blogs and websites. The Scottish culture was just as awesome as the surrounding scenery and resulted in an amazing experience.

I took a weekend bus tour of Skye Island and the Highlands. This was perfect: from a summary of Scottish history to viewing all the best sights from the northern and western parts of the country. Our guide Nory was welcoming, knowledgeable, and friendly throughout the life-changing weekend.
