Live. The Skiing in Scotland is in Aviemore in the Scottish Highlands i used to work there and its a nice part of Scotland to visit on Holiday Id also recommend using say the capital of Scotland Edinburgh as your base as you can also in advance book a tour for the Highlands by bus for a day and while in Edinburgh you can take in one of the most breathtaking citys in Europe as Edinburgh has fine architecture and is a city which also has what we call the old town and the new town..Also has some nice Museums to visit and on Chambers Street it has a nice museum The Museum Of Scotland which is Free of charge to get in..was closed down this winter just past for refurbishment inside the Museum but i think its open this Summer ? Worth a check ..there's also a museum close-bye which was chargeable but i think that's all free of charge now..Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile is also a must visit and has much History also in Scotland the castle was built on a Volcano.. Also like any city many bars and restaurants etc ...Edinburgh has many cobbled stone walk-ways also so comfy footwear is an essential..Although there's bus tours which leave from Waverley Bridge just nxt to the Waverley Station which takes you if you like around the city on a city tour which like all tours in a city is chargeable...For Mountain scenes with quaint villages towns and Lochs in Scotland then the Scottish Highlands is a must visit and is the best scenic area in the whole of the UK.. Ben Nevis close to "Fort William" is the largest Mountain in the UK.. other nice citys are Perth and Inverness..although Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland ..Glasgow is the Largest city in Scotland and the pubs in Glasgow are a must visit :) Fife in Scotland has some nice small tranquil fishing villages Anstruther / Crail / Pittenweem / St Monans / also is a nice visit.. and there is other nice areas to visit in Scotland... Answer Theres tonnes of stuff you can do in Scotland, there are hundreds of mountains, forests, rivers, lochs, rapids, beaches, basically there are a lot of things that you can do that involve nature. You can do everything you can do in any other place though. Some fun places to go are cadonas - Aberdeen, Edinbugh Dungeons - Edinburgh obviously, Landmark - not sure where that is, St. Andrews Golf Course (not sure what the real name is) which is the worlds oldest golf course and where golf was invented, Aviemore because of the skiing and snow boarding and all of that stuff, Loch Ness and do I really have to explain that one? Orkney and Shetland are fun to go to and all of the other islands, and there are hundreds of castles to go to too. There are millions of historical sights around Scotland so go there. Oh, and the highland games are fun to watch.
Scotland is a very beautiful country. And you can do all things that can be done in Occident. What do you believe Scotland is ? A country where there are only castles, men wit…h kilts eating haggis and drinking beer, waiting to see a monster in a lake ? Scotland is an industrialized and modern country. People are as educated as anywhere in the industrialized word.
everything Americans don't do
No one knows. The Picts existed since before recorded history.
Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Occupying the northern third of the island of Great Britain, it shares a border… with England to the south and is bounded by the North Sea to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west, and the North Channel and Irish Sea to the southwest. In addition to the mainland, Scotland consists of over 790 islands including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides. Find more details here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland I think you mean *What is Scotland?, are would imply there was more than one.
Drink whiskey and shoot haggis.
They Came across the sea in their long canoes over 2000 years ago. They are the Mikmaq If you take the time and look closely you will see.....:) These are my people! The Mic…macs probably came across the Atlantic around 2000 BC. They had previously received an Egyptian migration in Maine around 2500 BC; the Egyptians gave them hieroglyphics, which they still have! The Micmacs probably set out to find their ancient home Egypt, and found Scotland instead. They mixed with the many peoples they found there, including ancient Capoids ("brownies"), Basque-like Ambrones from the Netherlands, Etruscan-like Attecotti from Thrace, Liguro-Lappic Fomori from Norway (Iuchurbe), who fought the Tuatha De Danaan in Ireland, and the remnants of the ancient Goidelic Celts of Britain (the Gogmagogi) who were driven north by the invading Cimbric Celts (Brythonics) when the latter invaded Britain from Bohemia. It's mind-boggling how many people the Picts really were! Now they are the Scots. When Columbus visited Ireland shortly before his voyages to America, he saw two Micmacs, a man and a woman, who had washed up on the Irish coast in a canoe; they were close to death. Columbus asked the man with sign language where he had come from; the man pointed to the West and died. Some say that this experience is what prompted Columbus to undertake his historic voyages.
King Duncan was. Macbeth killed him and then he was crowned King!
