SCOTLAND has such loyal admirers they return regularly, often bypassing the land to south. They come to the borders to visit with Robbie Burns, and to enjoy its thousands of miles of undeveloped coast; to explore its nature preserves, and offshore islands where scenery has a mystical quality not seen anywhere else. Edinburgh beckons with its Old and New Towns and a fabled Royal Mile. Forty two miles (68km) away, Glasgow has been declared the Cultural Capital of Europe. A vibrant city these days, noted for its splendid Victorian architecture, its sensational art collection donated to the city by Sir William Burrell in 1983 has become Scotland's single most-visited attraction.
