Scotland is in the rugged north of Britain, famed for its dramatic scenery of misty mountains, vast glens, and ornate gothic architecture. The capital city, Edinburgh, is particularly beautiful with a cityscape so stylish it looks like a movie set. Head up the ancient Royal Mile and feel a part of Scotland’s long history. For adventure seekers, Scotland is an epic playground. The Cairngorms mountain range offers climbing, hiking and even skiing, while the 790 islands around the coast are rich with wildlife and secluded beaches. If you’re a golf fan, head to the pretty town of St. Andrew’s to play a round on the world’s first course.

    Scots are a typically a loud and sociable bunch, with a Celtic culture all their own. When visiting Scotland, you should embrace the unique elements that makes it so interesting and fun: the sound of bagpipes, the taste of haggis, and as much whiskey as your temperament will allow.
