Scotland is a fierce and self-sufficient country that maintains its own laws, language and educational system, although a part of Britain. The rugged landscape and harsh weather has encouraged individuality and self-sufficiency in the inhabitants and continues to do so. Countrymen who have had an influence on our own lives are Adam Smith, the economist, Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, Andrew Carnegie, the industrialist, and of course writers Robert Louis Stevenson and Robert Burns, to name but a few. 

The beauty of Edinburgh will bring you to this land, and crystal clear water, lonely glens and grassy hills with ever-changing skies will win you over.
