Despite being a relatively small country, Scotland offers a wide range of attractions that draw in visitors from around the world. Following are just a few of the most popular attractions within the country.

Broch of Mousa: Built around 100 BC, the Broch of Mousa is the most well-preserved broch in the Shetland Island. It is a large tower that is lined with stone both inside and outside and it still has its original intramural stair, which no other broch has.

Edinburgh Castle: Located at the top of black basalt rock, Edinburgh Castle was built in the 13th century and has overlooked the city of Edinburgh ever since. Visitors enter the castle by drawbridge and can view several city landmarks from its walls.

Loch Ness: The second largest lake in Scotland, Loch Ness has become known worldwide as the home to the mythical Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie. The lake is around a mile wide in most places and maintains a unique air of mystery.

Isle of Skye: as the largest of the country’s inner isle, the Isle of Skye offers a wide range of attractions for nature lovers, from mountain scenery and valleys to waterfalls, caves, and beaches. The island is only 50 miles long and is home to several small villages.
