Scotland is a country that inspires great love, respect and sometimes awe. So what is this country that we are inviting you to? In these pages we are going
to give you a little introduction to Scotland.
Scotland is a small and varied country at the Western edge of Europe made up of a substantial mainland and around 790 small islands, mostly to the North
and West. It has a long history, being one of the oldest established countries in Europe but it is also a vibrant modern country with state of the
art industries and strong cultural capital. Many people come to Scotland for its scenery, its rich history and its world-renowned cultural traditions.
Currently these are fascinating times in Scotland. A resurgence of interest in Scottish culture and a yearning by many for Scottish independence have created
a greater confidence among Scots regarding their heritage. While, like all countries, it faces challenges of various sorts, Scotland is experiencing
a wave of hope for the future and a renewed interest in knowing more about its own past. Why not come and feel it for yourself.
