Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, which consists of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The United Kingdom is a Constitutional Monarchy, which is a monarchy limited by a set of laws. So, the Scottish government is an exectutive branch of Parliament. Scotland's government, the Scottish Parliament, officially opened to the public 12 years ago in 2004, though it has existed for quite some time.

Geographical information

Scotland By Lauren V.

Scotland has all 4 seasons, because it is in the Temperate Deciduous Forest. Much of the UK is included in this diverse biome. There are many freshwater ecosystems, like lochs and rivers. Some famous examples are Loch Ness and the River Tay. There are saltwater ecosystems as well. The Atlantic Ocean and North Sea border most of Scotland. If it weren't for the gulf stream, the entire UK would be covered in ice!
