Scotland has been voted the most beautiful country in the world by the readers of Rough Guides. Some of the common draws of Scotland include its lochs, islands, and views of the stars.
The lochs, or lakes as their known elsewhere, stretch across wide expanses through the country. They came from ancient glaciers melting in the area.
Scotland is also home to the tallest peak in the U.K. Ben Nevis measures in at 4,400 feet tall and it is a popular spot for hiking.
Scotland might be an unexpected place for islands but it actually has over 800 of them in the area. The Isle of Skye is one of the most popular thanks to its gorgeous mountains and quaint villages.
Scotland is an excellent place for stargazing and even sometimes catching the Northern Lights.
