You can wear a kilt, eat haggis and shag a sheep obviously!

When I was in Edinbugh last may I ate this deep fried in batter with chips at 2am.

Haggis purists would turn in their grave!

Yep, go there! Get lost on the CairnGorms and do Ben Nevis too..I'm sure it's pretty ropey going up both during this time of year though?!

Scotland is great. I've seen more of it than England...

Number one thing on your list to do is try a bottle of Buckfast. It's a caffeinated tonic wine brewed by Benedictine monks in the Southwest of England, but is sold almost exclusively in Scotland and Ireland. A really sweet, sticky bottle of cheap red wine that has the same effect as 3 or 4 double vodka and red bulls, for only about 7 quid.

Do this. It will turn you into a superhuman.

Glasgow is a cool place to hang out in but a week is plenty of time to see more typical Scottish sites than a regular city.

Number 1 go to Edinburgh. Visually this is one of the top cities in Europe. It's a mere hour on the train from Glasgow (every 15 mins from queen st station, no need to book in advance) and when you walk out of Waverly station at the other end for the first time it's a real 'wow' moment. The place is dripping in atmosphere.

Get the afore mentioned bottle of Buckfast, stick your best atmospheric BM in your ears and go to Greyfriars Kirkyard after dark. It's right underneath Edinburgh Castle, is full of deadly tombs and is possibly my favourite place in the city. There is tons to do in Edinburgh you could easily spend a couple of days there and not scratch the surface.

If you want to go further afield and see some countryside Loch Lomand and Glencoe are good shouts made previously. Loch Ness would be a mission and a day spent on buses, as would the western isles although you could maybe take a train to Fort William (a dump of a town) where you could at least see the western highlands and Ben Nevis.

If you're in Glasgow on a Saturday or Sunday, visit "The Barras".
Havn't been there in years, but it's an outdoor market sort of thing where you can get anything from beach towels to fake passports. Very dodgy area, but highly recommended.

If you are interested in Occultism then you might like to visit 23 Enigma:

http://www.23enigma.com/

And a tenuous link perhaps, but there is a cafe/bar called Mono I like to visit whenever I am on the West Coast:

http://www.monocafebar.com/

...it is vegan/vegetarian, by the way. (They held an Austin Osman Spare exhibit I attended years ago, with guest speaker Michael Staley, so it is not your 'average' place, you might say. Also, there is, or at least was, a small record store within the cafe.)

If I was you, though, I'd hop aboard a train and visit Edinburgh. Far more cultured, historical, beautiful city. If you do, I'd recommend you visit the National Gallery as we have on display works by Botticelli, Raphael, Da Vinci, etc.

Good to see a few people travelling for the gig. I'll be there, definitely.
