The dramatic and varied natural features of Scotland never fail to impress the massive volume of visitors it receives. Though fairly small, the country offers a huge range of landscapes, from the gentle rolling hills and valleys of Dumfries and Galloway to the breathtaking jagged peaks of the Cairngorms, and from the weather worn coastlines of the north east to the sub-tropical gardens of Western Ross. The variety is truly amazing, Scotland is also world famous for whiskey and the hearty welcome that comes along with that fine old Scottish hospitality, everywhere you go.
Scotland's mountains are amongst its most precious natural features, particularly the Munros; some of the peaks exceed 3000 feet (914.4 metres) which draw climbers and walkers from all over the UK, Europe and the world. Famed for their mythical monsters like ‘Nessie’, superb fishing and inspiration for poets, artists and song-writers, the Scots have always made extensive use of their lochs and water ways for work and play. Scotland is a natural paradise of outstanding natural beauty. Golf, fishing skiing, rock climbing, mountaineering and hiking are all popular activities in Scotland for those wishing to partake in a wee bit of physical exercise.
