Scotland | Expert Panel

August 10, 2021

Today we’re whisking you away to Scotland, the land of castles, whiskey, and tartan. But there’s more to experience here than just the typical stereotypes. Whether you’re coming for magnificent neolithic ruins, to cycle across the country, or to revel in some of the most authentic festivals you’ll find anywhere in the world – Scotland has something for everyone. 

Our guests today are Paul Easto and Stevie Christie – experts of course on Scotland, but also on active adventures around the country like kayaking, hiking, and cycling. 

We dive into so many insider tips in this episode, from the evolution of Scottish food, to the history of the Scottish Clan, to exploring the thousands of Scottish islands by kayak… and everything in between.
