Scotland is a very beautiful country, full of contrasts and with a rich history and culture. Glasgow is the largest city of the six cities and from here it’s easy to travel to the capital, Edinburgh, and to the dramatic Highlands and Islands towards the North of the country. Even Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park are only 40 minutes away - so it’s easy to escape the city and enjoy fresh air and wonderful views.
Scotland is teeming with wonderful wildlife and the greatest golf. It’s home to dozens of whisky distilleries, dotted all the way around the country. Everywhere you travel you see lochs and castles so enchanting that they inspired Walt Disney to create his own. This dramatic land has stirred the creativity of poets, painters and authors who immortalised tales of national heroes and lovers.
Go fishing, hiking, mountain biking. Become a culture vulture and visit the numerous museums, art galleries and theatres. Take yourself back to the past through fascinating ruins and ancient buildings on tiny islands and in the middle of the biggest cities. Watch world class rugby at Murraryfield. Don’t miss the Edinburgh festival every August, the biggest arts festival in the world - as a student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, you’re likely to be taking part, too.
Scotland is one of the best countries in the world to make your home as a student.
