We speak about Scotland many times but...                                Do you really know all about it? I don't think so.

Scotland is a country that forms part of the UK. This country borders with England and is bounded with the North Sea, Atlantic Ocean, North Channel and Irish Sea.

In the next photo you can see where it's located:

The capital of Scotland is called Edinburgh, it's one of the biggest cities and it's one of Europe's largest financial centres. Edinburgh was the hub of the Scottish Enlightenment of the 18th century, which transformed Scotland into one of the commercial, intellectual and industrial powerhouses of Europe.   

Scotland has about 5,254,800 habitants and they're called Scottish or Scots, most famous like Scottish. You will see Scotland's flag in the next picture:

  The climate of Scotland is temperate and tends to be very changeable. We can say that it's warm.
Scottish people are very characterized because they drink lots of beer and because they have scottish music like a significant aspect of the nation's culture, with both traditional and modern influences. The most traditional Scottish instrument is the Great Highland Bagpipe more common like "Bagpipe"; it's a wind instrument consisting of three tubes and a melody pipe, they're fed continuosly by a reservoir of air in a bag. In the next pictures you can see types of Scottish's beer and Scottish's "Bagpipes".

·In this photo you can see how Scottish get dress when they play Bagpipes.

In Scotland the official language is English but they speak more like Welsh, Scottish Gaelic, etc. 
Scotland have devolved goverment and within a constitutional monarchy. The prime minister of Scotland is Alex Salmond. In the next webpage you can find more things about him.
