Scotland's often turbulent past, her extraordinary people, the rich diversity of her arts and culture, and the many other features found around the country, have produced a nation that treasures its past and  anticipates its future.   

From the stone circles of Orkney to the new parliament building being erected in Edinburgh, Scotland's dramatic history spans 8,000 years, years marked by invasions and independence, wars and religious upheavals, intrigues and subjugation. 

Today Scotland occupies a pivotal position in a British and European context  - 19th-century Glasgow's title as Second City of the British Empire was no idle boast! Such a history has left its mark on the nation's psyche - as well as the landscape - and has contributed in no small way to the fierce pride with which the Scots view themselves and their country today. 

So many words are attached to Scotland... kilts, bagpipes, clans, castles, lochs, highlands, Scottish Whiskey,  and let us not forget the legend of Loch Ness. Cities like Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, all offer their own characteristics, and are ready to be discovered.  Edinburgh offers world class golf, while Glasgow is a vibrant metropolis.  A vacation to Scotland offers a wealth of history, culture, scenery and of  course the hospitality of the Scottish people.


"Edinburgh", said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, "is what Paris ought to be." 
Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty buildings of its medieval Old Town, as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace of the Georgian New Town. Above it all, in its towering splendor, stands the Castle.
