5.5 million

Scotland is a part of the United Kingdom located in the northernmost part of Great Britain. It is known for its historic and beautiful landscapes, which range from rolling green hills to rocky coastlines and majestic lochs. A visit to Scotland wouldn't be complete without touring Edinburgh Castle, an ancient castle dating back to 1093 that houses various museums and treasures. Other tourist attractions include Loch Ness, home of the famous monster; Stirling Castle; and Glasgow Cathedral, one of Europe's largest cathedrals.

For those seeking a more cultural experience, Scotland offers many historical sites such as Melrose Abbey, a 12th century monastery built by Cistercian monks; Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness; or Skara Brae, a 5400-year-old Neolithic village preserved in near perfect condition due to soil erosion shielding it from human activity. An interesting historical fact about Scotland is that it was once an independent nation before joining England in 1707!
