Look out of your window. What do you see? Unless it’s a mountain looming over a majestic loch, a 12th century castle or a historic pub serving 150 different types of whisky then you need to move to Scotland immediately. Still not convinced? Here are 21 other reasons.

1. Because this could be your commute.

This is Caledonian MacBrayne’s Hebridean ferry service shuttling people between the islands and mainland Scotland. Can you imagine a better way to get to work?

2. Because you can train seagulls to steal crisps for you.

The giant seagulls in Aberdeen are the stuff of legend, not least because they’re perfectly happy to wander into corner shops and steal food.

3. Because you’re never more than a few miles away from scenery like this:

Loch Lomond is just one hour’s drive from Glasgow.

4. Or this…

Glencoe is the most dramatic – and most photographed – glen in the Scottish highlands.

5. Because this is the capital city.

This is the view from Calton Hill in Edinburgh. No other city in the UK can beat it.

6. Because the pubs stay open until 1am. And they look like this.

This is the beautiful, remote Monachyle Mhor hotel and pub on the banks of Loch Doine.

7. And they sell plenty of this.

SO MUCH WHISKY. Aka uisge beatha, the water of life.

8. Because the wildlife is spectacular…

White tailed sea eagles are a common sight on the Isle of Skye.

9. …not to mention friendly!

‘Oh hi. Do you have any fish?’

10. Because you can see the Northern Lights.

…or the ‘Mirrie Dancers’, as they’re called in Shetland.

11. Because New Year celebrations last three days, and they’re epic.

We party so hard at Hogmanay that we get January the first and second off work to recover.

12. Because when it snows, it snows properly.

13. …but it’s ok, because the Shetland ponies know how to keep warm.

Not all Shetland ponies wear cardigans, but when they do it’s unbearably cute.

14. Because there’s free entertainment every August.

Well, in Edinburgh at least. Walk up and down the Royal Mile and you’ll get sneak previews of hundreds of Edinburgh Fringe acts without having to pay a penny.

15. Because it’s the most beautiful country in the world.

Enough said.
