Scotland's landscape is as varied as it is
beautiful. Rugged peaks sweep down to breathtaking lochs,
glistening in remote glens like Glen Affric near Inverness and
Loch Trool in Galloway. A straggling coastline, with white sandy
beaches, sheltered bays and rocky cliffs, looks out to the
remote islands in the Atlantic. To the south, the rolling hills
of the Borders, lush lowland pastures and extensive woodlands
present a softer beauty.
Edinburgh is among the outstanding cities of
the world, where the medieval Old Town contrasts with the
elegant Georgian New Town. Other towns, notably Glasgow, display
a wealth of Victorian architecture. Everywhere you can find
ancient castles and houses. Prehistoric forts, stone circles and
burial mounds can be explored, particularly at the Neolithic
Heart of Orkney.
Finally, at the end of the day, relax with
Scotland's greatest export, a dram of fine malt whisky.
