Every year, on June 24, a national holiday is widely celebrated in Scotland — Independence Day (Independence Day of Scotland). On June 24, 1314, at the Battle of Bannockburn, the Scottish king Robert the Bruce defeated the army of the English King Edward II, restoring the independence of his country.

We believe that Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Ancient castles, ancient ruins, picturesque plains, virgin forests, crystal clear lakes fully reflect all the splendor of this proud, full of contrasts country.
