Perhaps the most recognizable symbol of Scotland is the majestic Edinburgh Castle. The majestic architecture of the castle rises from a volcanic rocky mountain and towers are located in the city of Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is divided into two areas: Old Town and New Town. The Royal Mile is the main road that runs through the Old Town. It connects Edinburgh Castle to the Holyroodhouse Palace where is the official residence of the Queen of Scotland.

In addition to the mainland on the British island. The country also has more than 790 islands, including the Northern Islands and the Hebrides. Mull is the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides Islands. From Fionnphort Harbor on Mull Island, you can catch a ferry to the islets of the Iona Islands, which is considered the historic center of Christianity in this country. Arriving in Iona, tourists can enjoy the peaceful scenery on the Hill of the Angels, where it is thought that St. Columba used to pray. Columba founded a monastery on the island and he is considered to be a Christian evangelist in Scotland.

The Isle of Skye is the largest northernmost island of the Inner Hebrides. The most attractive point in Skye is the breathtaking natural landscape. Kilt Rock is considered a famous sightseeing spot in Skye. This 200m high cliff looks like the folds of a traditional Scottish kilt skirt and the name Kilt Rock was born.
