Scotland is a picturesque country that lies in the north of Great Britain. In fact, with a total area of 78 772 square kilometres, Scotland actually makes up about a third of the whole of the United Kingdom. Apart from its southern border, which is shared with England, Scotland enjoys the watery borders of the North Sea, North Channel and Atlantic Ocean. In addition to the mainland, the area of Scotland includes almost 800 individual islands. The capital city of this country is the bustling epicentre of Edinburgh. However, Glasgow remains its largest city.
