Scotland Beautifully Scenery

Aug 17, 2007
You will find Scotland is in the north of the United Kingdom and is thirty one thousand square miles in area. There are three major cities in Scotland Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow and a number of populated towns. There are hundreds of islands categorized as the Hebrides Orkney and Shetland islands. The population on these islands are relatively low.

The United Kingdom is one of four constituent nations which are naming Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. The official language is English. However in the highlands Gaelic maybe spoken and in the low lands Scot.

The national flower is the thistle although the heather which covers significant moorland areas is also closely associated with the country. Scotland is traditionally known for its beautifully scenery but also bad weather. The west coast consists of locs, locs are known as lakes in Scotland. The myth of the Loch Ness Monster can be found here.

A new Scottish Parliament was elected in 1999 following devolution of powers from the United Kingdom Parliament in London. This is the first time Scotland has had its own parliament in 300 years. The Scottish Parliament which sits in Edinburgh is responsible for most aspects of Scottish life.

In Scotland its own legal system education system Scottish Law and banking system. Edinburgh is the second financial centre of the UK and one of the major financial centres of the world.

Skiing in Scotland is perfect for beginners and more experienced visitors keen to brush up their skills. A short ski break in Scotland is a really good way to try out the sport before committing to a high cost ski holiday elsewhere in the world. The weather and the snow conditions at Scotlands five resorts have never compared favourably with the continent. A spate of mild winters has even threatened to bankrupt the industry while periods of heavy snowfalls can be accompanied by high speed winds and poor visibility. Every regular Scottish skier will have their own horror stories. For example the rocks, the slush, the ice, the wind. However there will also be at least one story of a heavenly days skiing under blue skies, with barely a soul on the slopes. Another advantage is that all the resorts are within easy reach of the capital. Tips to ski in Scotland include checking the daily weather before you go. Hire the equipment it may get broken due to the rocks. Take your own food, you dont want to be tripping back into town during the day.
