Scotland (Scottish Gaelic: Alba) is a country in north-western Europe. Sharing a 60 mile (96 km) long land border with England to the south, and separated from Northern Ireland by the North Channel of the Irish Sea, Scotland is surrounded by the bracing waters of the North Sea to the east, and the North Atlantic Ocean to the west and north. The capital is Edinburgh; the largest city is Glasgow. It is the most administratively independent of the four home nations of the United Kingdom, having retained its own legal, religious and educational institutions when it acceded to the Union in 1707, and since 1999, has had its own separately elected devolved government which deals with exclusively Scottish affairs.

Apart from these and several other cities, the popular image of Scotland for most travellers, of course, centres on the "Highlands and Islands" - a wonderfully diverse land, Scotland has much to offer virtually any traveller.
