Scotland is beautiful, indeed. It has many beautiful natural places and historical discoveries. Last year I have visited Edinburgh and St. Andrews and this year I had an opportunity to visit Glasgow, Loch Lomond and Edinburgh once again. Luckily, this time it wasn't raining in Edinburgh and was able to take a walk around. Moreover, visit Edinburgh before Christmas time was magnificent, is the city center was so alive and I always got a weakness for Christmas lights. Finally, I had a chance to summarize top 10 places you should visit and see while in Edinburgh!
