I went to Scotland for the first time last weekend for a wedding and discovered much about the countryside, the culture and the language. The Highlands are spectacularly beautiful, the people are friendly and laugh a lot and the accent is not as difficult to understand as many people might think. I would certainly like to return to see more of the country and would definitely recommend a visit.

What do you think the following pictures represent about Scottish culture?
