Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. Situated on the northern third of the island of Great Britain, Scotland has over 790 islands, including the Northern Isles and the Hebrides. The climate of Scotland is temperate and oceanic, and tends to be very changeable. As it is warmed by the Gulf Stream from the Atlantic, it has much milder winters (but cooler, wetter summers) than areas on similar latitudes, such as Labrador, southern Scandinavia, the Moscow region in Russia, and the Kamchatka Peninsula on the opposite side of Eurasia.

The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
