From famous battlegrounds to beautiful landscapes, Scotland is a great place to visit with plenty of attractions for visitors.

Did you know that the national animal of Scotland is the unicorn? Though you won't be able to get a glimpse of the magical creature, Scotland offers plenty of pride in other Scottish traditions. If you're feeling adventurous, the national dish of Scotland is a plate of haggis. Robert Burns wrote a poem all about the the savory-style pudding that is often served with "neep and tatties" or turnips and potatoes. For those less adventurous, you can always find the traditional Scottish dish of fish and chips served alongside the famous Scottish whiskey. 

One of the most famous lakes in the world is located in Scotland, the Loch Ness. Located in the Scottish Highlands, the Loch Ness is Scotland's second largest lake. Due to its massive depth, the Loch Ness is famous for sightings of the Loch Ness Monster. Because the water is so deep and murky, the dark waters offer low visibility and is the perfect scene for a scary aqua monster lurking underneath the waves.
