What's New In Edinburgh?

Visiting Edinburgh in January and wondering what the hot new things to do, eat, see, or experience there since my last trip 3 years ago.

What should I ask my mom to get me in Scotland?

My mom is flying to Scotland today for a long business trip. She texted me asking if there is anything I wanted from there. She used to always get me tea on these trips, but I'm cutting it out of my diet. What should I ask for that's not too expensive? Something I can't get in the U.S. Midwest.

Help us enjoy the Scottish Highlands!

We have 9-10 hours to spend in Scotland around Inverness (arriving in Invergordon). We are interested in seeing some beautiful Scottish highland scenery. We are interested in suggestions for routes to take to see the most dramatic scenery, and what would be some worthwhile local sights/castles/picturesque villages to see. We have heard about the road from Durness to Ullapool, but are not sure if there is time for that. We do not have a car but might be able to hire a driver. Thank you for any help!

Where can one see working sheepdogs in Scotland?

My wife and I are visiting Scotland in late June, and would love to see working sheepdogs. I've read a lot about Leault Farms, of course, but are there any others where the public can watch the dog(s) as they herd sheep (or ducks, or whatever)?
