Some parts of the coastline consist of machair , a low-lying dune pasture land. The Central Lowlands is a rift valley mainly comprising Paleozoic formations.
Many of these sediments have economic significance for it is here that the coal and iron bearing rocks that fuelled Scotland's industrial revolution are found.
This area has also experienced intense volcanism, Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh being the remnant of a once much larger volcano. This area is relatively low-lying, although even here hills such as the Ochils and Campsie Fells are rarely far from view.
They lie south of a second fault line the Southern Uplands fault that runs from Girvan to Dunbar. The climate of most of Scotland is temperate and oceanic , and tends to be very changeable.

Scotland's wildlife is typical of the north-west of Europe, although several of the larger mammals such as the lynx, brown bear, wolf, elk and walrus were hunted to extinction in historic times.
There are important populations of seals and internationally significant nesting grounds for a variety of seabirds such as gannets. On the high mountain tops, species including ptarmigan , mountain hare and stoat can be seen in their white colour phase during winter months.
Today, much of the remaining native Caledonian Forest lies within the Cairngorms National Park and remnants of the forest remain at 84 locations across Scotland.
On the west coast, remnants of ancient Celtic Rainforest still remain, particularly on the Taynish peninsula in Argyll , these forests are particularly rare due to high rates of deforestation throughout Scottish history.
The flora of the country is varied incorporating both deciduous and coniferous woodland as well as moorland and tundra species.
However, large scale commercial tree planting and the management of upland moorland habitat for the grazing of sheep and field sport activities like deer stalking and driven grouse shooting impacts upon the distribution of indigenous plants and animals.

Scotland has limited self-government within the United Kingdom, as well as representation in the British Parliament.
Executive and legislative powers respectively have been devolved to the Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood in Edinburgh since The British Parliament retains control over reserved matters specified in the Scotland Act , including taxes, social security, defence, international relations and broadcasting.
It initially had only a limited power to vary income tax ,  but powers over taxation and social security were significantly expanded by the Scotland Acts of and The Scottish Parliament can give legislative consent over devolved matters back to the British Parliament by passing a Legislative Consent Motion if United Kingdom-wide legislation is considered more appropriate for a certain issue.
The programmes of legislation enacted by the Scottish Parliament have seen a divergence in the provision of public services compared to the rest of the UK.
For instance, university education and care services for the elderly are free at point of use in Scotland, while fees are paid in the rest of the UK.
Scotland was the first country in the UK to ban smoking in enclosed public places. The Scottish Parliament is a unicameral legislature with members MSPs : 73 of them represent individual constituencies and are elected on a first-past-the-post system; the other 56 are elected in eight different electoral regions by the additional member system.
MSPs normally serve for a five-year period. Together they make up the Scottish Government, the executive arm of the devolved government.
The first minister is also the political leader of Scotland. The Scottish Government also comprises the deputy first minister , currently John Swinney MSP, who deputises for the first minister during a period of absence of overseas visits.
Alongside the deputy first minister's requirements as Deputy, the minister also has a cabinet ministerial responsibility.

Scotland is represented in the British House of Commons by 59 MPs elected from territory-based Scottish constituencies.
In the general election , the SNP won 48 of the 59 seats. The Scotland Office represents the British government in Scotland on reserved matters and represents Scottish interests within the government.
The relationships between the central government of the UK and devolved governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are based on the extra-statutory principles and agreements with the main elements being set out in a Memorandum of Understanding between the British government and the devolved governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The MOU lays emphasis on the principles of good communication, consultation and co-operation. Since devolution in , Scotland has devolved stronger working relations across the two other devolved governments, the Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive.
Whilst there are no formal concordats between the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive, ministers from each devolved government meet at various points throughout the year at various events such as the British-Irish Council and also meet to discuss matters and issues that are devolved to each government.
The Scottish Government considers the successful re-establishment of the Plenary, and establishment of the Domestic fora to be important facets of the relationship with the British Government and the other devolved administrations.
In the aftermath of the United Kingdom's decision to withdraw from the European Union in , the Scottish Government has called for there to be a joint approach from each of the devolved governments.
In early , the devolved governments met to discuss Brexit and agree on Brexit strategies from each devolved government  which lead for Theresa May to issue a statement that claims that the devolved governments will not have a central role or decision making process in the Brexit process, but that the central government plans to "fully engage" Scotland in talks alongside the governments of Wales and Northern Ireland.

During the G8 Summit in , the first minister Jack McConnell welcomed each head of government of the G8 nations to the country's Glasgow Prestwick Airport  on behalf of then prime minister Tony Blair.
At the same time, McConnell and the then Scottish Executive pioneered the way forward to launch what would become the Scotland Malawi Partnership which co-ordinates Scottish activities to strengthen existing links with Malawi.

A policy of devolution had been advocated by the three main British political parties with varying enthusiasm during recent history.
A previous Labour leader, John Smith , described the revival of a Scottish parliament as the "settled will of the Scottish people".
The new government established a " National Conversation " on constitutional issues, proposing a number of options such as increasing the powers of the Scottish Parliament, federalism , or a referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom.
In rejecting the last option, the three main opposition parties in the Scottish Parliament created a commission to investigate the distribution of powers between devolved Scottish and UK-wide bodies.
Opposition from all other major parties led to an expected defeat. A majority in the United Kingdom voted to withdraw from the EU, whilst a majority within Scotland voted to remain a member.
The first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced the following day that as a result a new independence referendum was "highly likely". At Holyrood, Sturgeon's governing SNP continues to campaign for such a referendum; in December a formal request for the powers to hold one under Section 30 of the Scotland Act was submitted.
Historical subdivisions of Scotland included the mormaerdom , stewartry , earldom , burgh , parish , county and regions and districts.
Some of these names are still sometimes used as geographical descriptors. Modern Scotland is subdivided in various ways depending on the purpose.
In local government, there have been 32 single-tier council areas since ,  whose councils are responsible for the provision of all local government services.
Decisions are made by councillors who are elected at local elections every five years. The head of each council is usually the Lord Provost alongside the Leader of the council,  with a Chief Executive being appointed as director of the council area.
In the Scottish Parliament, there are 73 constituencies and eight regions. For the Parliament of the United Kingdom, there are 59 constituencies.

City status in the United Kingdom is conferred by letters patent. Scots law has a basis derived from Roman law ,  combining features of both uncodified civil law , dating back to the Corpus Juris Civilis , and common law with medieval sources.
The terms of the Treaty of Union with England in guaranteed the continued existence of a separate legal system in Scotland from that of England and Wales.
Various other systems derived from common Celtic or Brehon laws survived in the Highlands until the s.
Scots law provides for three types of courts responsible for the administration of justice: civil, criminal and heraldic. The supreme civil court is the Court of Session , although civil appeals can be taken to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom or before 1 October , the House of Lords.
The High Court of Justiciary is the supreme criminal court in Scotland. The sheriff court is the main criminal and civil court, hearing most cases.
There are 49 sheriff courts throughout the country. These were gradually replaced by Justice of the Peace Courts from to The Court of the Lord Lyon regulates heraldry.
For three centuries the Scots legal system was unique for being the only national legal system without a parliament. This ended with the advent of the Scottish Parliament in , which legislates for Scotland.
Many features within the system have been preserved. Within criminal law, the Scots legal system is unique in having three possible verdicts: "guilty", "not guilty" and " not proven ".
There is, however, the possibility of a retrial where new evidence emerges at a later date that might have proven conclusive in the earlier trial at first instance, where the person acquitted subsequently admits the offence or where it can be proved that the acquittal was tainted by an attempt to pervert the course of justice — see the provisions of the Double Jeopardy Scotland Act Many laws differ between Scotland and the other parts of the United Kingdom, and many terms differ for certain legal concepts.
Manslaughter , in England and Wales, is broadly similar to culpable homicide in Scotland, and arson is called wilful fire raising.
Indeed, some acts considered crimes in England and Wales, such as forgery, are not so in Scotland. Procedure also differs.
Scots juries, sitting in criminal cases, consist of fifteen jurors, which is three more than is typical in many countries. However, even prior to , half of Scotland's landmass was already covered by state-funded health care, provided by the Highlands and Islands Medical Service.
In , the NHS in Scotland had around , staff including more than 47, nurses, midwives and health visitors and over 3, consultants.

Scotland has a Western-style open mixed economy closely linked with the rest of the UK and the wider world. Traditionally, the Scottish economy was dominated by heavy industry underpinned by shipbuilding in Glasgow, coal mining and steel industries.
Petroleum related industries associated with the extraction of North Sea oil have also been important employers from the s, especially in the north-east of Scotland.
De-industrialisation during the s and s saw a shift from a manufacturing focus towards a more service -oriented economy. Edinburgh was ranked 15th in the list of world financial centres in , but fell to 37th in , following damage to its reputation,  and in was ranked 56th out of Whisky is one of Scotland's more known goods of economic activity.

Scotland had a long military tradition predating the Treaty of Union with England; the Scots Army and Royal Scots Navy were with the exception of the Atholl Highlanders , Europe's only legal private army merged with their English counterparts to form the Royal Navy and the British Army , which together form part of the British Armed Forces.
Numerous Scottish regiments have at various times existed in the British Army. In , as a result of the Delivering Security in a Changing World white paper , the Scottish infantry regiments in the Scottish Division were amalgamated to form the Royal Regiment of Scotland.
As a result of the Cameron—Clegg coalition 's Strategic Defence and Security Review , the Scottish regiments of the line in the British Army infantry , having previously formed the Scottish Division, were reorganised into the Scottish, Welsh and Irish Division in Because of their topography and perceived remoteness, parts of Scotland have housed many sensitive defence establishments.
Scapa Flow was the major Fleet base for the Royal Navy until A single front-line Royal Air Force base is located in Scotland.
RAF Lossiemouth , located in Moray , is the most northerly air defence fighter base in the United Kingdom and is home to three fast-jet squadrons equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon.

The school leaving age is 16, after which students may choose to remain at school and study for Access , Intermediate or Higher Grade and Advanced Higher qualifications.
There are fifteen Scottish universities , some of which are amongst the oldest in the world. Young Students are defined as those under 25, without children, marriage, civil partnership or cohabiting partner, who have not been outside of full-time education for more than three years.
Scotland's universities are complemented in the provision of Further and Higher Education by 43 colleges. These Group Awards, alongside Scottish Vocational Qualifications, aim to ensure Scotland's population has the appropriate skills and knowledge to meet workplace needs.
Scottish music is a significant aspect of the nation's culture, with both traditional and modern influences. A famous traditional Scottish instrument is the Great Highland bagpipe , a wind instrument consisting of three drones and a melody pipe called the chanter , which are fed continuously by a reservoir of air in a bag.
Bagpipe bands , featuring bagpipes and various types of drums, and showcasing Scottish music styles while creating new ones, have spread throughout the world.

St Andrew's Day , 30 November, is the national day , although Burns' Night tends to be more widely observed, particularly outside Scotland.
The national animal of Scotland is the unicorn , which has been a Scottish heraldic symbol since the 12th century. Scottish cuisine has distinctive attributes and recipes of its own but shares much with wider British and European cuisine as a result of local and foreign influences, both ancient and modern.
Traditional Scottish dishes exist alongside international foodstuffs brought about by migration.
Scotland's natural larder of game , dairy products, fish, fruit, and vegetables is the chief factor in traditional Scots cooking, with a high reliance on simplicity and a lack of spices from abroad, as these were historically rare and expensive.
Irn-Bru is the most common Scottish carbonated soft drink, often described as "Scotland's other national drink" after whisky. Mary, on her return to Scotland, brought an entourage of French staff who are considered responsible for revolutionising Scots cooking and for some of Scotland's unique food terminology.
