Scotland's area is more than half as big as England's. The main cities of the country are its capital Edinburgh and the main industrial center Glasgow. Scottish towns look very different from English towns. Some words about Edinburgh. Edinburgh, capital of Scotland, is one of Britains most attractive cities. Its a city for people who like to walk. You are never far from green parks, gardens and hills - even in the main shopping streets. Its a busy modern city. There are nine hills in Edinburgh. From the tops of them you can see two bridges: the modern road bridges an the old rail bridges which has carried trains to the Highlands for more than a hundred years. In the winter its white with snow but in the summer it becomes purple. Usually between the mountains are rivers and lakes. Highlands are famous for the Scottish Olympics or the Highland games (its real name). These games are not only sporting competitions: music and different traditional games are very important too. While athletes throw the hammer at the one end of the arena, you can watch a dancing competition at the other end. There is also a game for the strongest athletes - tossing the caber, which weights 60 kilos and is six metres long. These games are very popular in Highlands. Scottish people like fishing very much, thats why they say that Scottish rivers are good for two : fishing is one, the other is Scotch whisky. Whisky is made from water and barley. The method hasnt changed for hundreds years. Scotch whisky is the best one. Scotland is also famous for its kilt, the most important part of national dress and bagpipes - the national instrument. Scotland is a very beautiful country and if you visit it you shall never forget it.
