    Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK). Covering the northern third of the island of Great Britain, Scotland's only land border is with England. The country is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west, the North Sea to the northeast, the Irish Sea to the south, and more than 790 islands including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides. Ireland lies only 21 kilometres from the south-western peninsula of KintyreIt. Scotland has a population of around 5.5 million. It has a population density of 67.2 people per square kilometre, with around 70% (3.5 million) living in the Central Belt area between the major cities of Edinburgh (the capital) and Glasgow. In the Highlands, population density can be as low as 9 people per square kilometre, a major change from Glasgow's density of 3,289 people per square kilometre.

    Scotland boasts some absolutely stunning landscapes, with Highlands to the north, Lowlands in the centre, and Uplands to the South. It is home to most of the EU's untouched wilderness, and even in the most populous city of Glasgow has the highest green spaces per square unit.

    Scotland has a multifaceted and unique history. You can see early human settlements tracked through to modern industry, all with their own culture. Music, literature, law, business, and politics all have their own Scottish traditions that are distinct from England and the rest of the UK.
