Scotland, a part of the United Kingdom, occupies the northern third of Great Britain and shares a border with England.  It can be divided into mainland Scotland and the Scottish Isles which number some 800 small islands, the best known being the Isles of Shetland, Orkney, the Hebrides (inner and outer), Arran and Skye. Scotland is made up of majestic mountains, rolling lush glens, dramatic coastlines, picturesque lochs (lakes) and rivers.  The scenery has a reputation for being among the most spectacular in the World. The highest point in the UK is in fact, Ben Nevis at 1344 metres/4370 feet.

English is the main language spoken in Scotland with a wide range of different accents and dialects spoken across the country. The ancient Celtic language of Gaelic is still spoken.  

Scottish wildlife is abundant including red deer, pine marten, otters and a host of birds of prey as well as sea mammals, such as dolphins, porpoises and whales. A wonderful sight is that of leaping salmon on Scotland’s many fish-rich rivers. Scotland is home to some 500,000 deer and 1,000 golden eagles.

It is also excellent for walking or hiking from lakeside strolls to long-distance waymarked routes such as the West Highland Way and the Southern Upland Way as well as high-level mountain hikes for the more adventurous. Scotland is renowned for outdoors adventure pursuits such as white-water rafting on fast-flowing rivers, gorge walking, canoeing or sea kayaking.  In winter, there are five excellent ski centres.

Scotland is recognized worldwide as the home of golf with International standard courses such as St. Andrews, Gleneagles and Troon.  Fishing is also a sought after pastime here.

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the third largest city in the UK. In recent years, Glasgow has been awarded the European title of City of Culture. The city has transformed itself from being the once mighty powerhouse of industrial Britain to a centre for commerce, tourism, and culture. Glasgow was the host city for the Commonwealth Games in 2014.  It has a revitalized city centre, the best shopping outside London, excellent parks and affords easy access to the Highlands and Islands. The centre of Glasgow has a fine legacy of Victorian and Edwardian buildings.

Edinburgh is rich in associations with the past and has many historical buildings including Edinburgh Castle, built high on a rocky hill overlooking the city and Holyrood Palace. Its Old Town and New Town are jointly listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also home to the annual world famous Edinburgh Festival of the Arts. 

The Highlands of Scotland contain some stunning scenery including mountains, lakes and rugged coastline.  Some of the best known destinations are Loch Ness (of monster fame), beautiful Loch Lomond and the majestic Cairngorm Mountains and National Park.
