2. Kagyu Samye Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre, Eskadelemuir

Scotland is a pretty international place, full of inspiration from around the world. Finding a Tibetan monastery might seem a bit weird, but it is also really cool. I mean, you can walk the gardens, take yoga, meditation and Taijiquan classes (some for certifications), visit the tea room, stay in a guesthouse or room with Wi-fi, or even camp on the temple grounds.

Kagyu Samye Ling was founded in 1967 and has been growing ever since. The façade of the main building is a mosaic of gemstone colors. Inside the temple is a stunning golden wall with a beautiful Buddha. Truly a gem.
