About Scotland

Scotland is the northern part of Britain, which in turn is located in northwest Europe. Sharing its only land border with England to the south has meant that throughout most of the country's history the larger nation has featured prominently. Scotland is separated from mainland Europe by the North Sea to the east, while the North Channel separates the country from Ireland to the southwest. As well as the mainland section of the country Scotland also consists of about 790 islands, most of which lie in the Atlantic Ocean that marks the boundary to the north and west.
