Scotland is a very small country. It is the most northern part of the island of Great Britain and is not far away from the Arctic Circle. It is 274miles (441 kilometers) long. Its widest point is 154 miles (248 kilometers). Its narrowest is only 25 miles (40 kilometers). Because of Scotland's narrowness, it is never possible to get far away from the sea. The river Tweed and the Cheviot Hills form Scotland’s southern border with England. The Northwest Channel separates southwestern Scotland from Northern Ireland. The northwest coast faces the Atlantic Ocean. The east coast faces the North Sea, which separates Scotland from the mainland of Europe.
The Highlands in the north of Scotland is a region of mountains and rivers, a country of great sea-locks, small towns and villages.
The west of Scotland is usually warmer than the east, due to the influence of the Atlantic ocean.
The largest lake in Scotland is Lock Lomond.
It is 23 miles (37 kilometers) long and 5 miles (8 kilometers) at its widest point.
It is well-known for its monster. Some people claim to have seen a creature 30 feet (9 metres) long in the lake.
There is a museum of Lock Ness monster visited by millions of people every year. It has more than 4,000 written reports and drawings of the monster made by those people who have “seen” it.
The city lies on nine hills and goes down those hills to the sea.
The highest hill is three hundred metres above the sea.
At the top of the highest hill in Edinburgh is Edinburgh Castle. It was the home of Scotland’s royal family until 1603 when King James the 6th of Scotland became king of England and moved to London.
Edinburgh is one of the greenest and architecturally most beautiful cities in Northern Europe and known as Athens of the North.
Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city, it stands on the river Clyde. Its population is about 1.2 million people.
ABERDEEN is Scotland’s third largest city with an official population of 200, 000 people. It is called the “Granite City” because most of its buildings are built from granite. Aberdeen is located in the north-east coast of Scotland .
Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland. Its population is 143, 000 people. The city stands on the north bank of the river Tay on the east coast.
Perth is one of Scotland’s historic cities and was once the nation’s capital. The city stands on the river Tay.
Men in Scotland wear kilts. They want to show other people that they are Scottish. To make a kilt, you need about six metres of tartan!
