Of Interest In Scotland

My wife is from Glasgow Scotland and we return there as often as possible. Scotland and Ohio are similar in many respects, from the outlook of the friendly natives to the terrain.

Our last trip was spent walking the hills near the Village of Straiton, Ayrshire. We stayed at Balbeg Holiday Cottages and had a great time. They were very well maintained and clean. This is the heart of "Robert Burns Country."
