Scotland is the part of the United Kingdom that occupies the north of Great Britain island, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. It includes also almost 800 other islands. With an area of 78,772 km2, the mainland coastline has a length of 9,910 km that increases to 16,500 km taking into account the islands. We may add the numerous lakes (known as "lochs") and rivers.
The climate is oceanic, changeable and temperate, less extreme than other regions in the same latitude thanks to the effect of the North Atlantic Drift. Due to the mountanious topography, rain is more frequent in the west part of the country, but to be honest, Scotland is not celeb for its bright sky (Edinburgh, for example, have roughly half of the annual sunshine hours in Lisbon or Dallas).
Due to this, the top tourist attractions are not the beaches, but the historical monuments and museums and the natural areas including forests, lochs and mountains.
