( http://www.worldvillage.com ) TODAY'S TOURBUS STOP : Scotland TODAY'S TOURBUS ADDRESS : http://users.colloquium.co.uk/~scott_awa/index.htm Ever since I saw the movie "Chariots of Fire" I've wanted to visit Scotland. I'm not sure I'll ever make it to the land of paisley and plaid, but today I took an "economy tour" of my ancestral homeland via the Web. Today's TOURBUS stop is a page of over 400 links related to Scotland, it's attractions, culture and history. But before we start the tour, here's a message from a sponsor that's touting the online medium. *--------------------------> ONLINE COURSES <------------------------* Just surfing the Net? Put it to work enhancing your career! Take online courses from University of Wisconsin-Stout. For more info point your browser to: *-----> http://major.uwstout.edu or E-MAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org <-----* Web search tools like Alta Vista are wonderful, but too much information can be just as bad as too little. A search on "Scotland" just now turned up over 70,000 hits. It might take a wee bit longer than you bargained to separate the wheat from that chaff, so sites like today's are great because the work is already done by a person knowledgeable on the subject. The "Rampant Scotland Index" on the Web at http://users.colloquium.co.uk/~scott_awa/index.htm ...is a comprehensive collection of the best links to all things Scottish. The index is divided into specific sections, with brief descriptions of each link. You can really run rampant if you check every single link, but here are a a bunch I picked out to help you start your own tour... Touring Around: http://users.colloquium.co.uk/~scott_awa/tourism.htm - Attractions, maps, tourism info Highlights: http://tnj.phys.tue.nl:80/users/jos/scot/index.html - A Dutch tourist's photo journal of Scotland Culture & History: http://users.colloquium.co.uk/~scott_awa/culture.htm - Clans, tartans, bagpipes, scotch and more Loch Ness: http://www.geo.ed.ac.uk/home/scotland/monster.html - Information on the legendary Nessie Edinburgh: http://www.efr.hw.ac.uk/EDC/Edinburgh.html - All about the capital city Virtual Inn: http://www.virtual-inn.co.uk/ - Your guide to UK hotels & restaurants. Info and reservations online. Gaelic: http://www.clark.net/pub/biscuit/sayings.html - See and hear some useful Gaelic phrases Dunblane: http://www.catalyst-highlands.co.uk/flash.htm - Story of the Dunblane school massacre, and a memorial Bagpipe Web: http://pipes.tico.com/Pipes/pipes.html/ - Bagpipe playing, making, buying & selling Hope you enjoy your exploration. Scots are often accused of penny pinching, so I figured why not just gather the wife & kids around the computer and vacation vicariously? Might work for you too... ;-) Here are a couple more money-saving ideas - check them out and be sure to mention that you appreciate their sponsorship of TOURBUS! *-----------------> BIG-TIME MAGAZINES FOR $10 A YEAR? <-------------* ONLY TOURBUS RIDERS KNOW HOW!
