Strange question - Scotland or Southern Spain

Jump to last reply

Ok I know the question is bizarre but I would like to hear opinions from folks who have traveled to both countries. We just came back from a 11 day Portugal trip and had a fantastic time. I would like to start planning our next trip to Europe (10 to 12 days early Aug) to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. I was more or less set on Scotland but our wonderful experience in Portugal is making me wonder if we should consider the South of Spain instead (Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, and Granada).
A little about our interests and prior travels. We love scenic places, atmospheric towns/villages and some history. We celebrated our fifteen year anniversary in Ireland and absolutely loved it (especially the Dingle peninsula, Burren, the N. Ireland coastline and of course the People). Our other fav trips have been to the Austrian lakes region (Wolfgang and Salzburg are memorable), Slovenia (particularly the Julian alps and Logarska dolina valley) and the Dolomites of N. Italy. As mentioned before we are just back from our Portugal trip which including the Douro valley, hilltop villages (Marvao, Obidos) and Algarve (which I did not particularly care for because it felt very touristy although we did enjoy the coastline by Sagres). We loved Portugal for its near perfect mix of scenery, wine, good food, ease of travel and cultural sights.
So my question is will we be disappointed with Scotland? Should we consider the South of Spain instead? Or maybe the Tirol region in Austria? Based on the above I would appreciate your thoughts and opinions. Willing to take some online bashing as well for the question :)
