There are some things that are uniquely Scottish, such as Highland Games, but in truth, there’s no single element that defines the country. Rather, it’s a subtle blend of many different ingredients that have been added to the mix down through the centuries.
Here, you can find a flavour of these – Scotland’s often turbulent past, her extraordinary people, the rich diversity of her arts and culture, and the many other features found around the country which have produced a nation that treasures its past and keenly anticipates its future.
It is important to protect the range of things that make Scotland distinctive. The Scottish countryside and culture are some of these and the tourism industry is working hard to sustain the quality of Scotland’s environment.
