Why Scotland? There is something for everyone to fall in love with. Imperfection can be beautiful and ruined castles are. Learning to seize the moment, like the sunshine after the rain. Getting lost in a breathtaking, wild and unexplored landscape. Remember that Scotsmen are not English. You will have to learn a new language in a new land.
Scotland is beautiful! It is a picturesque country with its rolling hills and summer meadows in the east and the dramatic mountain ranges and an abundance of Islands in the North and West. And, in fact, not many countries as small as Scotland can boast almost 800 small Islands. This country is part of the United Kingdom in the area of the island of Great Britain.
What to see?
There are so many things to do and see on a tour of Scotland. Edinburgh, the capital, has an incredible history. The Royal Mile and the Edinburgh Castle are must-see monuments of the city. Among the prettiest small towns, St. Andrews is likely the most beautiful little place with historic buildings.
The imagination of Scotland takes to the monster of Lochness (still not been found!) and makes a visit to Urquhart Castle, 20 miles away from Inverness, one of the places that you cannot miss.
In the land of mystery castles, the Eilean Donan Castle probably is one of the prettiest in Scotland. While in the land of the islands, the Isle of Skye, with its wild and rugged landscapes, that can be easily reached by the bridge that connects the island to the mainland, is definitely well worth a visit.
However, the Shetland Isles are probably the most beautiful place to visit. The best time for a visit is the Viking festival, the Up Helly Aa. Those are 24 annual community celebrations of Shetland’s Viking heritage.
It is a land of green rolling hills, rugged coastlines, and cosmopolitan cities. There is something for everyone to fall in love with. Imperfection can be beautiful and, in fact, ruined castles evoke a glorious past thanks to their imperfection. The importance of seizing the moment, like the moments of sunshine after the rain. Whichever route you travel, you will surely get lost in a breathtaking, wild and apparently unexplored landscape. Scotland is also the best place to test your knowledge of English, as the Scotsmen are not English. You will realize that you have to learn a new language in a new land.
