We have a choice every morning when we wake up: we either stay in bed a little longer, or we can get out of bed and enjoy the day! True, each choice has a benefit; after all, we all enjoy a lie-in every now and then. But if there was ever a reason to get out of bed, it would be to enjoy a stunning Scottish sunrise. Set your alarm and visit some of Scotland’s top locations to witness the sunrise.
