Now, I’d like to say a few words in conclusion.
We’ve travelled through England and Scotland.
And I hope you enjoyed a lot. I’m glad that
we’ll learned a lot about Great Britain. It’s great
when people have an opportunity to travel and
expand their outlook. Our travelling is over.
Thank you for your work. Good bye!

Highlands and Islands
To the north of Edinburgh and Glasgow are the Highlands of Scotland: mountains with few
trees, wild deer and many sheep. It’s one of the most picturesque places in the world.
The Highlanders, the people of the area – are very devoted to their country with its striking
beauty, though it is not so prosperous as other places in Britain. Most of these people are farmers
and fishermen. Scotland does a lot of fish trading. On the small islands to the north and west of
Scotland there are fishing and farming villages. The houses in the villages look modest but they
have to be strong enough to keep people warm in winter when cold winds blow from the sea.
Some of the people still speak Gaelic, the ancient Celtic language of Scotland.
