Places in My Postcard


This postcard illustrates an image of the Trossachs in Scotland. The Trossachs is part of the geographical region in the Highlands of Scotland. The Trossachs is located in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in the “Stirling council area, historic county of Perthshire, Scotland” (Britannica 2019). The Highlands are known globally for their beauty and breathtaking landscape. This major region of Scotland has contributed to much of the country’s world fame.  The term is commonly used to refer to the region west of the town Callander to Loch Katrine, however it is actually just part of a glen between Loch Katrine and Loch Array (Britannica 2019). This region has become an active site for tourism, with it now being the largest National Nature Reserve in the United Kingdom (The Times 2015). From it being a highly visited tourist site for people around the world, to a park full of rich flora and fauna seen nowhere else, it is this that makes it Scotland’s national treasure.
