Scotland

Scotland is the UK’s most northerly nation, traditionally famed for its mythical monsters, whisky, haggis, tartan, bagpipes and golf.

Its landscapes are full of drama and variety, from the gentle rolling hills of Dumfries and Galloway to the breathtaking peaks of the Cairngorms.

Scotland is packed with history and culture, from the neolithic sites of the Orkneys to the vibrant cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Scotland has 284 mountains over 3,000 feet, named Munros after Victorian mountain surveyor Sir Hugh T Munro. Ben Nevis is the highest at 4,409 feet
