It doesn't matter what you like to do, you can do it in Scotland. One can start with touring historical sites; castles, abbeys, battlefields, recreated farmsteads and quaint villages abound. Unique government and private partnerships have ensured that historical sites are preserved and open to the public. Many castles and stately homes have been restored and furnished so that visitors can step back in time. A few miles from Westwood Cottage Bed and Breakfast, the National Trust for Scotland maintains Culzean castle which has been a fortified site on the Scottish cliffs overlooking Ireland for over 400 years. The current structure dates back to the end of the 18th century, is open for daily tours, and can even be rented out!

Well-developed trails and facilities await nature enthusiasts who can hike, bike, or canoe across Scotland from the highest peaks to the low-lying forests. Scottish cities offer cosmopolitan activities comparable to any European center. The art, natural and historical museums have excellent collections in modern facilities. The performing arts are alive and well in active theaters and concert halls. Some things that are uniquely Scottish; highland games, the military tattoo, pipe band festivals, distillery tours and country shows emphasize Scotland's contribution to folk arts, music, and customs.

First and foremost though, Scotland brings golf to mind. Those who truly enjoy the game shouldn't pass up the opportunity to experience the birthplace of the game and to play on the regal courses where the British Open is held. Westwood Cottage Bed and Breakfast is in a perfect location to offer access to both the world renowned courses and their neighbors normally reserved for insiders and locals.
