Scotland is a land of craggy mountaintops, deep valleys, shimmering lochs, and rocky seascapes, occupying the northernmost portion of Great Britain. The drama of its landscapes, particularly the mountain ranges of the storied Scottish Highlands, is rivaled only by its rich history.

From thriving urban centers to picturesque rural villages to ancient castles, there are plenty of exciting ways to engage with Scotland’s long history as an innovative and independent-minded nation. You’re sure to find what you’re looking for in the culturally rich city of Edinburgh, the edgy and exciting city of Glasgow or one of Scotland’s many small cities and towns. 

Though a part of the United Kingdom, the Scots have retained distinctive linguistic traditions, unique sporting pursuits, a great love of political independence, and a high regard for education.
