    Welcome to the forum, Nuri, we're glad to have you with us. As Mosaic said, bellydance, and this board, are both highly addictive! And if you're like the rest of us here, you don't want to be cured!

    Hi Angela

    So far the bellydancing world in Scotland is very friendly and the class is so much fun that the hour races by.

    How are things in your area?

    It is exciting to hear that bellydance is also a big thing in Scotland. I haven't been to Scotland but I read and heard so many beautiful things about your country. I was able to join a very fun-filled Scottish Highland Festival in a castle in Europe around 2-3 years ago - the games, place, people, the food, the shops, music and dances all made the air more festive. Loved the costumes some girls wore - somewhat Gothic inspired.

    What are the top spots to visit in Scotland?

    Belly dance is becoming bigger in my country and is very well received. In my city though, we are not segregated to different levels which makes it awkward for some.

    Default Sorry for slow response

    Havent been on the forum in a while so sorry for the delay.

    Top spots to visit in Scotland:

    Edinburgh if you want to do the whole history thing and cram it in in one day

    For scenery then round about Loch Ness is gorgeous

    For something unusual try Glasgow, as well as all the art stuff (See Charles Rennie Macintosh and the Glasgow School of Art) there is The Cathedral and St Mungos museum if you are into religious iconography or for something really different maybe slightly wierd to some but if u like things gothic. Then the Necropolis at the back of the Cathedral in Glasgow.

    Its a huge and very old graveyard with big stone and granite monuments and lots of interesting inscriptions to read

    Where in Scotland would I go for isolation, hiking, wildlife, and scenery? I'd like to plan a trip to Scotland but am not too hot on crowds. The necropolis sounds great- I love graveyards.

    Default Isolation

    Hey Shanazel

    Thats the great thing about most of Scotland is not too far from the towns and cities there is open countryside with nice walks and great scenery.

    Even from my village I can take a really short walk and be in the countryside. At the right time of year one of our woods has a carpet of bluebells.

    Hiking and stuff well we have the Loch Lommond National Park and anywhere around Loch Ness has great scenery and plenty of places to hike. We have deer and various wild birds not forgetting our long haired Highland cattle of course.

    If you want me to find out any more or recommend some websites just gimme a shout
