March 15, 2018

Scotland is a beautiful country – it almost goes without saying that we love this part of the world. However, not everyone is lucky enough to see what we see; some people have no idea why others love Scotland so much. But we have the answer to this. Scotland is loved for many reasons and it’s virtually impossible to narrow it down to just one.

Scottish history and culture are renowned across the world, not to mention the fact that there are luxury hotels in Glasgow that many people love to visit. But rather than just give you a few reasons, we thought that we would make a list and give you them all!

The History

First known to have been inhabited over 10,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age, people have lived in Scotland for more than 8,000 years. Indeed, as many Scots will attest, there is no better place! Scotland has come through the Roman invasion, The Wars of Independence, the Protestant Reformation and both World Wars and is still standing strong. This alone shows that Scotland is country of determination and courage which, as anyone will say, is a great quality.

The Culture

Of course, it’s not only history that makes Scotland great. In fact, the country may even be more well known for its culture. From amazing art and wonderful music to rich folklore and mythology, Scotland is a country filled to the brim with cultural delights. People across the world know all about Scotland’s most popular myth, the world-famous Loch Ness Monster which supposedly lives in Loch Ness. And although there’s no definitive proof that Nessie is real, the tale has nonetheless contributed to Scotland’s diverse culture and brought in thousands of tourists each year, all hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive creature.

The People

One of the best things about Scotland is the people. They are completely unique and will greet you in a way that no-one else can. They are strong, independent people that have flourished in this beautiful country. You will never hear a Scot complain about Scotland and although they may be biased because it’s their home, if they all agree there must be something extra special about this part of the world.

The Places

There are various famous places in Scotland, such as Loch Ness, Ben Nevis, Eilean Donan Castle and the wonderful cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. For these attractions alone, Scotland receives over 15 million tourists per year – not to mention those who continue to visit the country year after year. But with so many outstanding historical sites and luxury hotels in Glasgow, it’s no wonder why this is such a popular place to visit.

Now that you know some of the reasons why Scotland is great, all that’s left to do is plan a visit and see it all for yourself. Truly unique and breathtaking, there truly is nothing like it – that’s why we love Scotland. But don’t just take our word for it, book a trip and check out luxury hotels in Glasgow to find the best place to stay. You won’t regret it!
