Scotland has been a massive part of my life even though I am only twelve years old. Scotland is the place where I was born and grew up in and where I will spend the rest of my life in. Scotland is famous for lots of things and I am going to tell you about five wonderful things or places that I have experienced or seen as I have lived in Scotland.
Scotland is very famous for its beautiful scenery. Scenery includes mountains, hills, rivers, and lochs. These are just a couple of bits of scenery Scotland has to offer. Ben Nevis is the tallest mountain in Scotland at the height of one thousand three hundred and forty four metres high. This is only one part of Scotland I have told you about and we are going to explore more through this essay.
Scotland is a big fan of traditional music. There are lots of different instruments which makes the music so important to us. Bagpipes are one of the main Scottish instruments that are played during songs. Fiddles, Guitars, Harp, Accordion and the Thin Whistle can also be used. Scotland has lots of festivals to celebrate the life of the music including Celtic Connections, The Tattoo and The Edinburgh Fringe. These are just a couple of points about Scottish music, but there is still much more that Scotland has to offer.
With everything Scotland has to offer I can assure you that food and drink in Scotland is delicious. Scotland is famous for lots of food and drink including Shortbread, Haggis, Whisky and Scotch Pies. Haggis is a big tradition especially on the 25th of January because this was the day when a famous poet was born called Robert Burns, but in the next paragraph I will explain more about him.
Scotland has many famous poets, singers and inventors including Robert Burns (poet), Sandi Thom (singer), Alexander Graham Bell, (inventor). Robert Burns was and still is a success to Scotland. He had written lots of poems which are very big hits today! My favourite poem is called To a Mouse. Robert Burns is just one of many poets who amazes me, but there is one down side about Scotland: the weather…
I can’t tell a lie and say that the weather in Scotland is warm and sunny because I can assure you it’s not. Except we do have our days! I feel that it really doesn’t need to be sunny when you have so much to do in Scotland. From visiting monuments to tasting the delicious food you have too much to fit in before thinking about the weather. The best time for nice weather I would say would be spring time but as I said it doesn’t matter.
I feel that Scotland is one of the most wonderful and exciting places to visit. It has so much to offer and I would definitely recommend it to tourists.
