Scotland: The Land of Legends
If we travel all over Scotland, we can see that it consists of three main parts:
Lowlands, Uplands and Highlands with their Grampian Mountains, where the tallest
mountain peak, Ben Nevis, is located.
You are sure to enjoy the beauty of the Scottish varied landscape: the hills
covered with purple heather, its beautiful lakes (here they are called lochs), its green
and narrow valleys.
The biggest and the most beautiful lake in Scotland is Loch Lomond, but the most
famous one is Loch Ness with its mysterious monster Nessie. Nessie sometimes appears
to scare the tourist but only in fine weather!

groups) and the tartan became a symbol of the sense of kinship. There are about 300
