Best places to visit in July holidays

There's a surprise among the best places to visit in July: Scotland, where drier weather means better conditions for riding the West Highlands Line or sailing out to Orkney. Further south, the sun shines over Croatia, Montenegro and Italy, and safari season follows the great animal migrations of East Africa.
