More about Northern Scotland

In the North of Scotland are located the famed Highlands of Scotland - a major tourist attraction. They consist of two main mountain ranges - the Northwest Highlands formed by the most ancient rock layers in the country and the Grampian Mountains with the highest peak of Britain (Ben Nevis 1344 m), separated by the beautiful Glen Mor Valley, also known as the Great Glen, which present-day landscape was shaped by glaciers millions of years ago.

Aberdeen is also known as the Granite City for its Victorian buildings with impressive facades made of local granite stone. Its history dates back to the medieval times when in the 12th century it was given a Royal Burgh charter. The city has two universities: the University of Aberdeen and The Robert Gordon University. The first one boasts a long tradition dating back to late 15th century when it was founded. The most important historic and architectural monuments are located in the main Union Street, including the medieval Trinity Hall and the 19th century Music Hall. Other important building in the city is the new Town House. It is located in the Castle Street and in fact is not quite new dating back to the second half of the 19th century. His Majesty's Theatre has a pretty square in front of it with a statue of William Wallace - one of most beloved national heroes of Scotland.

Inverness is the capital city of the Highlands. It is located on the mouth of the River Ness, not far from the famous Loch Ness. It was founded in ancient times as a fortified settlement of the Picts. The most important tourist attraction is the Inverness Castle perched on a rocky riverside hill. Right below the Castle, on the Castle Wynd is located the Museum of Art and Gallery showing a rich collection of artifacts related to the history of the Highlands going back to the ancient time of the Picts. The Cathedral dedicated to St Andrew which is an Episcopal seat was built in the 19th century on the banks of the River Ness.

The Isle of Skye, one of the Hebridean Islands off the north-west coasts of Scotland, is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the UK thanks to its unrivalled natural beauty boasting a much alluring landscape and representing an impressive meeting of dramatic steep rocks with the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

There is hardly anyone who has not heard of Loch Ness and its monster Nessie. It has a length of 23 miles, very deep and cold waters, surrounded by steep rugged mountains and lush waterfront woods - a scenery that has inspired people’s imaginations for thousands of years.
