Hilly and given to landslides (the island's highest point is found there), St. Andrew Parish of the Scotland District is less built up than the others, and contains Barbados' last little bit of rain forest at Turner's Hall Wood. The sea is wild on this northern coast, but the long beaches are stunning. Many protected natural reserves are found there. The Scotland District is so named because the early settlers believed the area's lush setting looked like Scotland.
St. Andrew Parish is also home to the potters of Chalky Mount, which is a popular spot for visitors interested in craftsmanship.
