While Scotland may well be one of the smallest countries in Europe, the nation and its people have certainly made their presence felt. William Wallace, Rob Roy and Robert the Bruce are names which are recognised the world over and it’s not just because of Hollywood movies. These Scots were well known long before the likes of Mel Gibson or Liam Neeson brought them back to life.
But, as well as their historical heroes, however, the Scottish themselves are largely responsible for the popularity of the country as a holiday destination. Their rich sense of humour and their love of fun make visitors to the country want to become part of whatever is going on, be it a traditional ‘ceilidh’ or a festival of some sort.
The country’s other biggest asset is of course its scenery. From the heather covered mountains and glassy lakes to the castles and abbeys, a visit to Scotland will certainly make you appreciate why this country is so popular as a tourist destination.
