Non-Golfing Activities in Scotland

Though Scotland golf generally fills most of my time on in Scotland, I have found it enjoyable to take some time out now and then to seek out the many other interesting things that Scotland has to offer. I have also taken Scotland golf trips with folks who do not play. My wife is not a golfer and, on occasion, golfing friends have companions who do not play. For these folks it is especially important to note the wide and wonderful variety of diversions that the visitor can find in Scotland.
