Virtual Scotland

Stacey Goes To Virtual Scotland

Scotland is a place that I'm never likely to visit in the real world, but that doesn't mean that I can't visit them.

I live in New England. I'm also French, pretty much 100%. I was an import. This pretty much eliminates any desire I have to go to Scotland, with one exception (see below)

Nothing against Scotland... the Scots are cool people, responsible for giving us golf and Scotch whiskey. It's just not different enough from New England or France to justify going to it. In New England, you use vacation time to go somewhere warm.

But a virtual visit is just what I need. Thank the Gods that someone made virtual Scotland.

When you go to Scotland, you start off in this useful information hub that sort of fluffs you for the journey.

Scotland has some cool stuff to check out. I made a point of visiting the Boleskine House. This house was owned, at different times, by noted spooky occult figures Aleister Crowley and Jimmy Page. The house is spooky enough IRL that Page brought in someone to exorcise ghosts.

You also have Inverness, which is both a city and a castle that MacBeth lived in before he went big-time. Both are represented ehre. There are actually several castles you can f*ck around in. Well, not literally "f*ck," but you know what I mean.

The highlight of the visit is the Nessie Hunt. The Loch Ness Monster is, to my knowledge, Scotland's most famous resident. You don't go to Scotland and fail to visit Nessie. It's like going to Pizza Hut for pasta otherwise.

I was also looking for William Wallace, but I never really paid enough attention to that movie to know where to look for the man. IMHO, Braveheart would have been a better movie if the Loch Ness Monster was in it.

I'm not going to give anything else away, so you can see for yourself. Go visit those Socts!
