Lonely Planet Scotland is a guidebook covering all the best destinations to visit, from Edinburgh to Glasgow to Orkney and Shetland. Their highlights and itineraries put all the top things to do in easy-to-read lists, while their cultural insights equip you for when you arrive.

 

I thought that the inclusion of a section on disabled travellers was particularly thoughtful as many guidebook do not cater for those that have trouble getting around by assuming that everybody is equally able. The chapter provides specific information on how to best get about and the potential problems that one may encounter if carrying a disability whilst travelling in Scotland.

 

Another aspect of the book that I thought was very useful was the fact that it appeals to everyone, regardless of interests. For example, if you are more keen on discovering what Scotland has to offer in terms of shopping, then there is an entire section dedicated to it, whereas if you prefer to discover the traditional festivals that are on then there is also a section dedicated exclusively to that. All are presented in an easy to navigate contents page, allowing you to quickly find what you’re after.

 

I also enjoy looking at the ‘Special Features’ section of the book, which includes Scotland’s museums, castles, islands, lochs and mountains. In each Lonely Planet guidebook, there are always different special features that highlight what sets that particular country apart from others, its level of detail giving the reader a good grasp of what to expect.

 

One criticism of the book would be the inaccuracies when it comes to recommending some of the lesser known, smaller towns. For example, some places that the guide states as having nowhere to eat or drink do in fact have lots of cafes and restaurants. This could be down to a lack of research or simply being out-dated in certain areas.

Pros
  • Caters to all travellers, regardless of disability, religion or sexual orientation
  • Offers information and recommendations whatever your interest
  • Special features section contains info on what sets the country apart from other destinations
Cons
  • Details of smaller towns is less accurate than bigger ones

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
