Our whole lives we’ve been under the impression that Scotland should be visited for its delicious shortbread cookies, kilt-wearing bagpipe players and the elusive Loch Ness Monster. But all this time we’ve been wrong. So wrong. 

The best reason to hop on a plane to Scotland is to meet two cardigan-clad Shetland ponies — Fivla and Vitamin.

The adorable pony ambassadors recently donned custom-made, hand-knit sweaters to help Scotland’s tourism board promote its campaign: Year of Natural Scotland 2013.

Once you’re done watching the video of Fivla and Vitamin getting bundled up in their cozy cardies, check out more photos of the pair at the VisitScotland blog.
