Scotland is a beautiful place to be, nothing beats the sight of the Scottish Highlands. Everyone would enjoy a good holiday in Scotland with lots and lots to see and do. Scotland is full of beautiful things; highlands, monuments, hills, and castles.
Scotland is full of beautiful castles. Edinburgh Castle is one of the most visited landmarks in Scotland. It is situated in Edinburgh (the capital of Scotland). It is beautifully situated on an extinct Scottish volcano. The castle has been there for many years and Edinburgh Castle has been involved in many historical conflicts, from the Wars of Independence to the Jacobite rising in 1745. Edinburgh castle has also been besieged, successfully and unsuccessfully.
Scotland is the place to be if your looking for places to go, activities to do or even just for sight seeing. Scotland is one of the best countries to be in, with all of the famous landmarks. Stirling Castle; full of exciting historical facts and held very many historical events, Wallace Monument; WOW, get to the top and look over Stirling and the surrounding areas, it will take your breath away. Ben Lomond; it’s a bit of a climb to the top but I am sure when you reach the top it will be all worth-while, look over loch Lomond and it will take your breath away (take a camera) it will be a moment you will want to cherish.
Well nothing beats skiing/snowboarding in Scotland, nothing is better than a long day on the slops with family/friends. Whether you are a beginner or an expert – it’s great fun for all the family. Glencoe Ski area is also known as Glencoe Mountain or the White Corries Ski Centre. Glencoe is the oldest ski area in Scotland and is also one of the best.
It is best to go skiing or snowboarding between November and May because this is winter season and there is more snow on the slops.
Glencoe has a total number of 16 slopes, the top elevation of the mountain is 1,108m.
Scotland is famous for its scenery, take London for instance it has no green at all, where as up in Scotland we have more than you could ever imagine. Loch Lomond is looked over by Ben Lomond (a large mountain). WOW! Your breath will not only be taken away by the scenery, I would be surprised if you could reach the top without your breath been taken away. Ben Nevis towers high above Fort William, it is over 4,406 feet tall (1,342,95 metres tall). Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles and it attracts an estimated 100,000 visitors a year.
Scotland is a small country but it has been made famous by its traditional dish: haggis, neeps and tatties. Scotland has not only produced haggis and has produced the Scottish national drink Irn-Bru.
Scotland has also produced Forfar bridies, bannocks also known as oat cakes, tunnock’s caramel wafers and tea cakes, crowdie, black bun, scotch pies, porridge and whisky.
For such a small country Scotland and the Scots can do some wonderful things. We Scots have done some magical things in the past (and I’m sure we will do more magical things in the future) like creating the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell, the television by John-Logie Baird, the steam ingine by James Watt, fridges by James Harrison or penicillin by Sir Alexander Fleming.
WOW! Scotland is the place to be. I am so proud to be a Scot, what would we have done without the television or the telephone or the fridge, we would be lost without these things because in modern day life they are now known as essentials. I have now just proved there is nothing better than being a Scot.
