Scotland is in the north-west of Europe, between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea. It is part of Great Britain and of the United Kingdom.
There are about five million inhabitants. A Scottish person is also called a Scot. They are British but we mustn’t call them English. Today everyone speaks English, but at one time, people in the north and west spoke Gaelic. Scotland has about 800 islands.  It isn’t a very hot country.

The first king was Kenneth MacAlpin. He is famous because Shakespeare wrote about him.
There were many battles between England and Scotland.
There was a queen called Mary. She became queen when she was 6 days old.

The most famous cities are Edinburgh, because it is the capital city and is the second city for visitors in Britain after London, and Glasgow, because it is the biggest city in Scotland.
Other cities are Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness and Stirling.


 Regarding sports, golf began in Scotland and football is also very important.
