An official, GB-196044 from Rosemary, showing 1) Cairngorms National Park, 2)Forth Bridge, 3) highland cow, and 4) Castle Stalker, Argyll.

Cairngorms is the largest national park in Great Britain, boasting
  • 5 of the 6 highest mountains in Scotland
  • the largest area of arctic mountain landscape in Britain
  • the cleanest lochs and marshes in Scotland
  • 25% of the UK's threatened animal and plant species
Forth Bridge, "the one immediately and internationally recognized Scottish landmark," (according to The Collins Encyclopedia of Scotland; I have to disagree since I can't recall ever having seen it before) connects Edinburgh with the county of Fife across the Firth of Forth. Try saying that five times fast.

Highland cattle, or kyloe, are an ancient Scottish breed of beef cattle.

Castle Stalker is located on a tidal islet near Port Appin in the Argyll region. It was featured in the final scene of the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail as Castle Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhh.

Queen's head definitive from sometime or other.
