About Scotland

The history of Scotland is complex, with tribal Celts, conquering Romans, strong Vikings, noble clansmen and more. As you explore the vibrant green landscape you will come across mysterious standing stones, fine castles, feats of engineering and lavish stately homes from across the ages. Fierce battles were fought, and unions made. Everywhere you look, you will see parts of Scotland that have stood still in time. For the budding explorer, historian or photographer, Scotland provides a unique library of opportunity. 

Gaelic is the founding language of Scotland, thought to originate from Ireland. It was the principal language of the medieval Kingdom of Alba, and is still spoken by around 60,000 Scots today. You might hear it first-hand in Lowland pubs and Hebridean cèilidhs (social gatherings).

Take the Speyside Whisky Trail for a wee dram or visit the capital city of Edinburgh. It offers a mix of medieval history, Georgian architecture, and contemporary culture with a variety of festivals to tempt any taste. Alternatively, explore Cairngorms National Park, which is larger than the Lake District and showcases the mythical side of Scottish history across the moors.
