TRAVEL GUIDE TO SCOTLAND
This is your ultimate travel guide to Scotland!
I’ve always been fond of Great Britain’s monarchy, my favorite part, that I’ve studied a lot is the Tudor Dynasty. I don’t know, there is something about the monarchy in the UK, right? Also, the way they are fond of their Royal family. Even I was sad to hear about Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s passing. I imagine how touching it must have been for their subject.
A new Era is starting now, with the Queen no longer among us and King Charles taking the reins of the Monarchy. I am fond of King Charles as he is very attached to Romania, where he has acquired some lands and is very close to people living there in the region. I find him so human, so humble with those peasants. I accept better his errors with Lady Di, an amazing soul, who did not deserve that fate.
Scotland is part of the United Kingdom including England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. On 6 December 1922, a year after the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, the territory of Southern Ireland left the UK and became the Irish Free State, now the Republic of Ireland.
The majestic Isle of Skye recently topped the Rough Guides list as Scotland’s most beautiful place to visit.
Lastly, Edinburgh Castle takes the title of Scotland’s most-visited attraction and one of Scotland’s most popular tourist sites.
