Edinburgh festival Fringe
Welcome to Scotland! A gem of a country situated in the north of the British Isles, Scotland has many treasures crammed into its compact territory31,000 square miles.
Vast, open skies, ancient architecture, romantic wilderness, unique wildlife and some of the most stunning landscapes that you could only believe to be real in your dreams!
A land with many layers of rich history, a place where every corner tells a story from the Battle of Bannockburn in medieval times, to the mysterious waters and legend of Loch Ness and the hundreds of castles steeped in history. A place home to so much wildlife found nowhere else in Great Britain where golden eagles soar above the lochs and mountains of the northern Highlands, minke whales breach off the coast of Mull and the friendly dolphins inhabit the Aberdeen coastline.
And let’s not forget the culture and arts, be it the poetry of Robert Burns, the crime fiction of Ian Rankin or the songs of Emeli Sandé, Scotland’s cultural exports are appreciated around the world every bit as much as whisky, tweed and tartan.
