Scotland is one of four part of the GB. In area Scotland is more

than half as big as England. The principal cities of the country are:

its capital Edinburgh and the main industrial center Glasgow. Scottish

towns look very different from English towns. Some words about Edinburgh



Edinburgh, capital of Scotland, is one of Britain’s most attractive

cities. It’s a city for people who like to walk. You are never far from

green parks, gardens and hills - even in the main shopping streets. It’s

a busy modern city, but the history is everywhere. At the top of the

highest hill in Edinburgh is Edinburgh Castle. It was the home of

Scotland’s royal family until 1603 when King James the 6th of Scotland

became king of England and moved to London.


The road which begins at the castle and goes eastwards is called Royal

Mile. At the other end of the Royal Mile is the Palace of

Hollyroodhouse. It was built by a Scottish king before Scotland and

England were united to make Great Britain. Now it is a second home for

the Queen or her children, who usually visit Edinburgh in the summer.

When the royal family is not there you can visit the palace and see a

lot of interesting things. There are nine hills in Edinburgh. They are

long-dead volcanoes. From the tops of them you can see two bridges : the

modern road bridges an the old rail bridges which has carried trains to

the Highlands for more than a hundred years. The highlands of Scotland

is mountainous and wild. In the winter it’s white with snow but in the

summer it’s purple. Highlands are famous for the Scottish Olympics or

the Highland games ( it’s real name ). These games are not only sporting

competitions : music and different traditional games are very important

too. While athletes throw the hammer at the one end of the arena, you

can watch a dancing competition at the other end. there is also a game

for the strongest athletes - tossing the caber, which weights 60 kilos

and is six metres long. These games are very popular in Highlands.

Usually between the mountains are rivers and lakes. Scottish people like

fishing very much, that’s why they say that Scottish rivers are good for

two : fishing is one, the other is Scotch whisky. Whisky is made from

water and barley. The method hasn’t changed for hundreds years. Scotch

whisky is the best one. Scotland is also famous for it’s kilt, the most

important part of national dress and bagpipes - the national instrument.


I thing Scotland is very beautiful country and if you visit it you shall

never forget it.
