Scotland has produced a number of great artists and writers whose works have focused on the rich history and picturesque landscape of the nation. Anyone staying in the hotels of cities like Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, or Stirling will be able to see many of the resulting masterpieces in galleries and museums.
The southwestern region of Scotland was the major inspiration for arguably the country’s most cherished man of letters, Robert Burns. His birthplace has been turned into a national attraction and features original manuscripts and artefacts from his life. Sir Walter Scott was also inspired by the Highlands for some of his great works, such as the historical novel about Rob Roy, whose grave can be visited at the Balquhidder Church Cemetery.
