Welcome To Virtual Scotland

Scotland is romance and misty mountains. Scotland will inspire, renew and relax you. It was for these reasons that tourists first started to visit Scotland, in large numbers, at the beginning of the Romantic Age. However there is more to Scotland than the cliched images of highland cows, pipers in kilts, tartan biscuit tins and the red haired football fans of the Tartan Army.

Scotland has something for everybody, the sheer variety of different ways in which you can enjoy Scotland makes it the perfect vacation destination for virtually anybody. From the tranquil mountains and glens to the delights of the wild nightlife offered by Scotland's cities the diversity is astounding.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our site and would hope that you visit Scotland soon. You will find information about the various places to visit in Scotland in our "Visit Scotland" section and we have shown the tourist regions below. In our "About Scotland" section you will find cultural information, Scottish history and general Scottish stuff such as Scottish jokes and Scottish recipes.

Wickerman Music Festival 2010 PhotographsI have just started adding our: Photos from Wickerman Music Festival 2010

The Wickerman Festival 2010 was another fantastic success and although it took me a bit longer to recover this year it was, as usual, well worth it. The weather was great, even though there was a little drizzle (light rain) and mist on the Saturday, and we all caught the sun and my daughter managed to get burnt even though she had applied factor 50 four times throughout the day?

Scotland is famous for many things but their are many things that are often attributed to "Great Britain" that are actually Scottish in origin. Of course the Bagpipes are rarely mistaken for being anything but Scottish. Together with the Kilt, highland dancing and the famous tartans Scotland has a very Celtic background and comparisons can be drawn with Ireland. Sadly, Scotland has yet to gain its' full independance from the rest of the U.K. even though the Scottish National Party has the support of luminaries such as Sean Connery.
