The Scandinavian Countries (wider definition)

 Scandinavia is a historical and geographical region in northern Europe that includes, and is named after, the Scandinavian Peninsula. It comprises the kingdoms of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. It is argued by some authorities that Finland and Iceland should be included , but in Scandinavia the term is, however, used unambiguously for Denmark, Norway and Sweden. These countries share a mutually intelligible language, ethnic composition and have close cultural and historic bonds, to a degree that some scholars consider them to be one people.

The Scandinavian relationship with Scotland is first recorded as a raid on the island of Iona in 795AD, and from then on till around 1050 AD, the Viking Age saw Scotland have a Norwegian Earldom established in the Northern Isles. The history and ethnic makeup of much of Scotland was thereafter affected strongly by this, and strong links remain to this day.
