MARCO POLO leads you from the Highlands to the Hebrides through wildly romantic and dramatic landscapes of a country that might look like a film set but is founded on a history stretching back thousands of years. The big cities come across as youthful and modern. Edinburgh in particular, the diva of the cities, lures with its quirky, independent shops. The Insider Tips reveal where one might understand Hitchcock's classic ‘The Birds’ or raise a glass with the philosophers, dreamers, workers and musicians of Glasgow.
