Cities & Towns

Scotland covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. It borders the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast and the North Sea to the east, and it borders England on the south. Scotland's landscape is comprised of mountains and hills formed by glaciation during the ice ages. 

The earliest settlement in Scotland is a preserved village, a stone-built neolithic settlement, dated to about 6,000 years ago, found in the Orkney Islands. There are over 7,000 historic towns and villages in Scotland today; each has its own charm and beautiful setting.


They say one of Scotland's best assets is the "Great Outdoors". Indeed, hiking in Scotland, or as they call it, "Hill Walking" is a different experience. For one, it can be quite windy, but if you can take it, you will be rewarded with the beautiful landscape. Check the link for some of the hikes we did traveling in Scotland.

Castles of Scotland

Scotland has over 2,000 castles, not all having protected status, built as both fortifications and residences. The original wooden motte-and-bailey structures in Scotland were replaced by stone castles in the late Middle Ages, from simple tower houses to grander scales. Later, private houses of aristocrats incorporated some of these castles' features into their own homes, thus producing the Scots Baronial Style, built mainly for comfort and not for defense.
