Many people will probably tell you soon after visiting, that Scotland is one of the most beautiful places in the world. And, after even just a moment in the country, you will likely understand why. Scotland is stretching green valleys and beautiful bluebelled woodlands; it is dramatic rugged mountain peaks and misty winding roads; it is charmingly lively antique cities and rustic islands and it is icy deep lakes and rushing rivers. Wherever you find yourself in this proud and generous nation, you can be sure that the chilly winds will be countered by the warmth of the people (and perhaps a couple of glasses of their world-renowned whiskey).
With so much incredible nature on display, it is no wonder that a number of species also find their homes in Scotland. By volunteering in Scotland on our Dolphin and Whale research project, you are likely to encounter porpoises, bottlenose dolphins and a range of different whale species.
