Do not be fooled by the small size of the country. Scotland is filled with a wide range of treasures. Huge skies, spectacular variety of wildlife, delicious seafood, isolated landscapes and incredibly friendly people are some of them.
Scotland is home to large swatches of wilderness that are hard to come across any more in Western Europe. It is a haven for wildlife where golden eagles soar unfettered under the blue skies, otters frolic in the Outer Hebrides shores and minke whales comb through schools of mackerel just off the coast.
The history of Scotland is fascinating with its many layers. Here, entire landscapes are bathed in history. Innumerable castles dot the country side. The immense fortresses at Craigmillar and Caerlaverock speak of a more turbulent history of the nation. Scotland has been the home where the poems of Robert Burns and songs by Emeli Sandé were brought to life. Even the famous Ian Rankin hailed from Scotland and used it as the setting for many of his crime fiction books.
The amazing variety of nature in display here makes Scotland all the more lovely. The best way to spend the time in Scotland is to curl up with a glass of the famed single malt Scotch, relax and enjoy the stunning range of colors, landscapes and beauty.
