Scotland is hidden windswept beaches and mysterious lochs enclaved by towering mountains of green. A rich culture and heritage are kept alive today with energetic traditions, as defiant as the crumbling castles. It is the untamed wilderness of Great Britain, with magical waterfalls, mythical mountains and craggy peaks, crumbling castles and verdant green landscapes.

Scotland is a wildlife haven, it is home to golden eagles, Mountain hare, Orkney vole, Pine marten, Red Deer, Red squirrel, Roe deer and the Scottish wildcat, also named the Highlands tiger, this cat could be mistaken for the domestic tabby cat but this cat lives in the woodland of Scotland, hunting voles, mice and hares. These remote and untouched areas have allowed species to thrive where they have been extinct in England and Wales. As you visit the lochs of the northern highlands you will find baby lambs prancing in the fields, seals sunning themselves on remote islands and otters tumbling through rivers and the shores. You may even spot a minke whale when it breaches in the Scottish sea.

Adventure enthusiasts can trek the scenic Cairngorms, take a boat ride to visit the Corryvreckan whirlpool, take a sea-kayak along the coast or chase waterfalls in the Cuillin. History buffs revere Scotland for its Celtic and medieval past, you can find remnants of its history scattered about the country in the forms of castles, some crumbling with ages, some kept in all of its splendour and some look as though they have stepped right out a fairytale. Visit; Dunrobin Castle to enthuse about the incredible French architecture, Floors Castle Kelso to view the River Tweed from its windows, Fyvie Castle for its rich interior or Kilchurn Castle, for its view from the tower house's battlements.
