#CreedDestinations: Scotland

A classic, as the old adage tells us, never goes out of style. Like a perfectly tailored suit, Green Irish Tweed has been (and continues to be), worn by confident and distinguished men at the peak of their field. The fragrance elegantly combines woody-freshness and pure masculinity, equally suited to wander through the Scottish countryside or an evening out in downtown Edinburgh. 

STAY
Up in the highlands you’ll find The Isle of Skye, an island with some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Scotland. The area is famous for its iconic white cottages, and rugged landscape. Warming yourself up after a day in the mountains next to a fireplace in one of these cozy cottages is probably for one of the best feelings in the world.

 For an authentically Scottish experience, check-n to the Victorian-era Fife Arms Inn located within the village of Braemar in the magnificent Cairngorms National Park. It brings together Scottish heritage, craftsmanship and culture with world-class contemporary art. A visit to the property offers a range of unique experiences right on its doorstep; whether you want to tour the hotel’s exceptional art collection, explore the landscape via Land Rover, fish in the nearby mountain streams, or visit a local whiskey distillery in the areas surrounding the inn.

 

EAT
Prepare for a delicious feast when visiting Scotland. Game, dairy, fish and vegetables are the cornerstone ingredients in Scottish cuisine and the cooking is simple and straight to the point. Scotland is most famous for its haggis, a savory pudding containing sheep's pluck.  and cooked while traditionally encased in the animal's stomach. Make sure to try out the Fish & Chips in Portree, caught directly from the Atlantic Ocean.

PLAY

There are no shortage of things to see in Scotland. Lace up your boots and head for a hike in the mountains, take in the scenic views from Skyfall drive to Glen Etive, and look for deer or visit Eilean Donan, one of many beautiful castles in the country Scotland. The highlands are packed with historical scenery that surely will make you feel like a brave heart. For the full cultural experience, a visit in the capitol is a must. Edinburgh is filled with rich history and many must- sees, including Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland and The Royal Botanic Garden. End your evening with a stroll down the cobblestone streets to the nearest pub for a well-deserved pint.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Scotland occupies the cooler, northern section of Great Britain where temperatures are generally low and rainy days are guaranteed. With notes of lemon, peppermint, violet and sandalwood, you can wear Green Irish Tweed with your favorite waxed jacket and merino knitwear. Stay warm, dry, and look sharp. To wear it is to be unforgettable… Welcome to Scotland.
