Scotland

Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom, occupying the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

One of the famous specialties is the Scotland traditional clothing – kilt. The skirt-like kilt evolved around the middle of the 18th century. Following the Jacobite defeat at Culloden in 1746, the kilt was forbidden.

When Highland regiments served with the British army, they still wore the kilt, allowing the kilt to continue survival during these years. Visitors are more likely to see kilt-wearers at formal celebrations such as weddings and at Highland Games or similar gatherings.

Another famous specialty of Scotland is Scottish bagpipes. In Scottish carnival programs and Scottish weddings, bagpipes are the most common instrument. Bagpipes can play very beautiful music that can make people feel peace and happiness in their heart.

Now, bagpipes are popular around the world, but with the mention of this instrument, everyone still thinks of Scotland. Because to Scotland, bagpipes are not only an instrument, but also an integral part of Scottish culture.
