Readers of the esteemed travel guides voted Scotland as the most beautiful country in the world followed by Canada and New Zealand, who made the second and third spots respectively.

On the company’s website, the description for Scotland read: “And finally, the world’s most beautiful country is revealed: Scotland. Who can deny that these wild beaches, deep lochs and craggy castles are some of the most wonderful and beautiful sights in the world?”

Malcolm Roughead, chief executive of VisitScotland, said “We are delighted that Scotland has received this remarkable accolade from Rough Guide reader, but of course it will not be a surprise to anyone who has encountered our wonderful country.”

“From our awe-inspiring landscapes to our remarkable historic attractions, to our bustling but beautiful urban centres, Scotland takes people’s breaths away.

“Of course, with great beauty comes great responsibility and we urge both visitors and residents alike to respect Scotland’s natural assets to protect and preserve them for many generations to come.”

As far as the country’s iconic castles are concerned, Edinburgh Castle is particularly special, looking out over the historic Scottish capital. Glen Coe, a volcanic site of great natural beauty and scientific interest, is among one of the most stunning destinations in the country.
