Scotland is a country with its own unique identity, from castles to lakes to bagpipes and kilts. Scotland has astonishing variety, even within a small area. North Sea to Irish Sea, Highlands to Lowlands, the landscapes of Scotland—lush woodlands, windswept moors, lochs as deep as the imagination—may take your breath away.
Edinburgh is a gloriously dignified city; Glasgow, a Victorian powerhouse. An excursion to St. Andrews is a pilgrimage for golf aficionados and numerous castles polka-dot the northeast. Its local products, customs, music, and traditional dress—from tartans and bagpipes to tweeds—travel all over the globe, but there’s nothing like experiencing them firsthand.
