Scotland is renowned the world over as a place of history and heritage, and it is a nation fiercly proud of its place in the world. Beyond this, with its Highlands, islands, mountains, glens, forests, lochs and amazing coastline, Scotland boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. Just as important and inspirational is the peacefulness of many of the country’s most beautiful locations. Another interesting variable is the weather. There are few places where the weather can change so quickly, and have such a transforming effect. With the sheer scale of some of the highland vistas, the dramatic clouds dropped in by a passing storm can completely change the nature of the scene. A magical place.
