Scotland is part of the United Kingdom and lies North of England. It is sparsely populated outside of the two major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. It was an independent country until 1707 when it became part of Great Britain.
Scotland held a referendum as recent as 2014 to separate from Britain and become independent. That referendum almost passed but was rejected with a majority of 55% to 45%.
Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and is a must see for any travelers. Our first trip was by train from London and what a fantastic journey that was. Word of warning, we had a child, stroller and 3 suitcases. I barely had enough time to load it all in the train before it was ready to leave. Move quickly!
I hope you enjoy our photos and they provide some help in navigating all that Scotland has to offer!
