Scotland, part of the United Kingdom, is a fantastic summer travel destination. The border with England (the lowlands) is gentle countryside, but it gets wilder as you head north to the highlands. Visit the lochs (lakes), mountains, remote islands and the historic city of Edinburgh. There is an abundance of vacation rentals (holiday cottages) throughout Scotland.
