Like Traveling with a College Student

"Be prepared for a YOUNG tour guide who spends quite a bit of time shouting woo hoo and leaping on her bed in the hotel room. She even goes so far as to ask an elderly pipe player if he's wearing anything under his kilt. I think she was trying to produce a hip tour video, which I can appreciate, but still ...
This video does get better once she's out of Glasgow and touring the countryside. There is quite a bit of beautiful scenery, and she does cover the highlights. We're planning a first trip and are really trying to get an idea of things to do and see, so for that purpose, this video is ok."

"The DCD is a good one; well mapped out and shows many of the top regions of Scotland along with a some local flavor here and there. The hostess is a wee bit of a twit, and as the program progresses, there is a little too much emphasis on her, but if you ignore this, you will certainly enjoy the scenic beauty of Scotland."
A nice journey

"This could have been an even better DVD of
Scotland had they hired a less obnoxious tour
guide. Meagan McCormick was more of a distraction
and could have used more tact and subtlety. One gets
the impression that the Scots she interviewed seemed
rather annoyed by her overzealousness. But, I knew what
I was in store for when the flighty guide jumped
onto her hotel room bed while yelling "Woo-hoo!"
With the tour guide issue aside, this is a very good
look at the beautiful green country of Scotland, its culture
and highlights. Along the trip we meet several interesting
people, such as the woman who plays soothing tunes on her violin
to curious seals. Also, we get a quick visit to Great Britain's
largest fresh water lake, Loch Ness, where a man has dedicated his
life to finding the Loch Ness monster, or "Nessie" as they sometimes
call the mythical serpent. And of course we get some history on
bagpipes, cuisine, Scotland festival games and reenactments of
Scotland's revered warrior and hero, William Wallace.
This is a nicely shot film and moves at a good pace and is
well worth the viewing."

"Globe Trekker: Scotland Wonderful subject...breathtaking scenery...and a completely daft host! You will watch this DVD primarily to decide if the host,Megan Mccormick,is really as silly and immature as she seems.She has the ability to make even the most interesting segment "cringeworthy" by her antics and inane commentary.A hopeless travel DVD."
