Have you ever wanted to visit Scotland? Castles, culture, glens and mountains – we’ve heard all of the reasons before.

Quite frankly, we’re not convinced.

We can find no reason that anyone would want to visit this country.

In fact, below we provide you with some ground-breaking research and evidence as to why you should definitely NOT visit Scotland.

Firstly, it’s just incredibly uninspiring.

With a boring, plain and flat landscape.

You very rarely get to see the sky at all.

Because it’s always raining.

Always.

There isn’t much to do outside anyway.

I mean, does this really appeal to anyone?

Culture? What culture?

They don’t even make good James Bonds. How hard can it be?

Wildlife? Nope, none of that either.
