Scotland

Scotland is an autonomy of the United Kingdom of Great Britain with a centuries-old history and powerful national traditions. Splendorous mountain landscapes with lakes and rivers, medieval castles and chapels create a special spirit and atmosphere. One of the most interesting and ancient cities of the country is Edinburgh, where one can taste various sorts of famous whisky. Scotland has a mild climate with warm winters. All the dives are performed in dry suits. Diving is possible in Scapa Flow that is located in the region of Orkney Islands. It is a popular place for wreck diving.

Here are light cruisers, battleship and minelayers.
