One of the countries that form the United Kingdom is Scotland. Its Gaelic name is Alba, and it encompasses the land which was inhabited and controlled by the Scottish tribe called the Picts. The geographic position of Scotland is on the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

It borders with England to the south, and the remaining borders are the Atlantic Ocean. The North Sea is the eastern border and the North Channel and Irish Sea make up the south-western.
