When did Scotland become Scotland?
The area now known as Scotland was first inhabited around 14,000 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age. (There may have been earlier inhabitants, but if so they left no trace.) It truly became Scotland, the land of the Scots, with the arrival of the Scoti or Scotti, Gaelic-speaking raiders from Ireland, in the fifth century A.D. Prior to that time the land was inhabited by Picts and Britons and known (at least to the Romans) as Caledonia.

A country in the UK :)
Scotland is not, never has been and never will be a part of England. Scotland is a country which is in a political union with England(inc Wales) and six counties of Ireland.. … Comment:. To refer to Scotland as being England (or part of England) has the same effect on a scotsman/woman as saying America is part of Canada or Americans are Canadians for the americans. It winds us up - so don't do it! ;-)

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
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.

No is often spoken as nae or naw, depending on the context.
The question over wither or not Scotland will become an independentcountry will be answered in September. It is very hard to get anaccurate public opinion at the moment as a l…arge portion of thepopulation are undecided, although polls do routinely suggest theresult would be no if taken now. As for England, well England is extremely unlikely to decide itwants to be an independent country.
