After a fill of history, scotch and scrumptious food, keep the last day on the Scotland itinerary to relax and enjoy a slow pace. Take a train from Inverness to Glasgow (it will take about 3 and a half hours). Once there, spend the day taking in the sights and sounds of the city.

Days 12 to 14There are two ways to look at my stay in Inverness. One way is to focus on the negativity that permeates this entire town and its people, to the extent that as a solo traveller I began getting worried about my safety even while having a sip of coffee during the day. The other way is to remember that in this same town are people who stood up to those acting weird and helped me out. So, in many ways, Inverness proved to be a metaphor for life in Britain, for tourists, travellers and ‘immigrants’. Now, what remains to be seen is which side will reach the so-called ‘critical mass’ and tip the balance for or against bigotry masquerading as nationalism and paranoia and violent opportunism posing as tribalism and ‘closed border’ policies.
