Scotland is a wonderful little country that attracts people from all over the world to marvel at the incredible untainted beauty and rugged countryside. What we find, though, is that when you live somewhere you often don't make as much of an effort to see the sights in your own country as tourists with a limited amount of time there would. With that in mind I made a list so as everybody could marvel at the incredible natural charm of Scotland. You'd hardly believe some of the photos are even real...
