Greendyke Street, Saltmarket, Glasgow G1 5DB, UK

121 Bath Ln, Glasgow G2 2SZ, UK
"Glasgow has a huge Italian community. People say you get the best ice cream in the world in this city because you’ve got the skills from Italy and the dairy from Scotland. Sarti, a family-run restaurant, is one of my favorite places to get a...

Knockando, Aberlour AB38 7RY, UK
Highland cows, or as they call them in Scotland, Heelain coos, have long horns and long wavy coats that you just want to pet. They're VERY photogenic and seem gentle but we were warned not to get too close!

Macallan Distillery, Easter Elchies, Charlestown of Aberlour AB38 9RX, UK
