You cannae tell the difference

Wow, you're really taken in by London's charms. To be fair, who knew it had so many gorgeous lakes, pine forests, stags, and highland cows. Well, they do say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

You're a Scotland vs. London genius.

Well done, you're not taken in by London's attempt to disguise itself as Scottish lochs, glens, and beaches. You know what the real deal looks like, and you can sniff out impostors.
