Scotland is a country in the United Kingdom. It covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain, bordering England on the southeast and surrounded elsewhere by the Atlantic Ocean, North Sea, and Irish Sea. It also comprises nearly 800 islands. We toured mainland Scotland and several larger islands, including the Orkneys and the Isle of Skye, by car for two weeks.
The country is dotted with beautiful historic castles and churches. It is also home to some of the best preserved and oldest stone circles and beautiful rugged coastlines.
