Scotland

  1. 1. Scotland By Robert Reid
  2. 2. The Scottish Flag The Scottish flag has been the same since the 9th century. According to legend, St. Andrew, patron saint of Scotland, was crucified on an x shaped cross at Patras. That is where the x comes from on the flag.
  3. 3. Sport  Sport has a major role in Scotland.  Without sport, what would they do?  In Scotland, people like to play sport such as rugby and soccer.  Golf and tennis are also played in Scotland.  Scotland also has it’s own ‘tournament’ called the Highland Games.  In the Highland Games they play sports such as Tug of War and Caber Tossing.
  4. 4. Fact File Population: 5,254,800. Capital: Edinburgh. Currency: UK pounds (£). Size: 78,387 km . Scotland is part of Great Britain. In Scotland, some people wear kilts. The most famous lake in Scotland is Loch Ness.
  5. 5. Scotland 1913-2013 Before After
  6. 6. Scotland 1913-2013  Scotland has not changed greatly over the last 100 years.  It still has it’s magnificent views and the people in Scotland are still very polite.  I think it would be a lovely place to visit and I hope to do so sometime in the future.
  7. 7. Highlands of Scotland
  8. 8. Loch Ness  Loch Ness is a big, deep, freshwater lake in the Scottish Highlands.  Area: 56.4 km2.  Length: 36.3 km.  Common Fish: Arctic Char, Northern Pike, Atlantic Salmon and Brown Trout.  The Loch Ness Monster is believed to be a myth and is said to have been seen in Loch Ness since the early 700’s.  The Loch Ness monster is one of the most famous ‘mythical’ creatures.  I believe in the Loch Ness Monster because it could have been a dinosaur that didn’t become extinct, because it lived in water and not on land. Crocodiles lived at the same time as dinosaurs and still exist - therefore the Loch Ness Monster may still exist.
  9. 9. Wildlife
  10. 10. Wildlife  There is lots of wildlife in Scotland.  Scotland is famous for it’s beautiful wildlife.  Here are a few examples of the wildlife in Scotland: There are deer, hawks, wild boar, hedgehogs, seals and grass snakes.  There are also lots of fish in Scotland!
