Scotland Favorites with Special Guest Colin Mairs
Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on July 26, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.
Scotsman and tour guide Colin Mairs joins Rick for a virtual tour through the highlights of Scotland. We'll start in the rugged Highlands, with its clans, hairy coos, and dramatic castles. At Loch Ness, we'll better understand the legend of the monster and marvel at the Caledonian Canal — an early-19th-century engineering triumph. Then, we'll head to Edinburgh to conquer its historic castle and get a dose of the kilted spirit of the Scotsman. Finally, for a real-world contrast, we'll head to Colin's hometown: gritty yet revitalized Glasgow, which, in its prime, produced 25 percent of the world's ocean-going ships. It's a rough and tumble city where (if you can understand the accent) they say "a funeral is more fun than an Edinburgh wedding." Along the way, we'll sample a wee dram of whisky and nibble on some shortbread.
