  Scotland is UFO capital of the world
Updated 24 June 2002, 12.53
Picture from Invasion: Earth, about an alien in Scotland
If you live in Scotland, you're more likely to spot a UFO than anywhere else in the world.

There are 300 reported sightings a year, that's four times as many per square kilometre than France and Italy, who came second.

A 'UFO' image
A common sight in Scotland?

For every 17,000 people there is one person claiming to have spotted 'something out there.'

Village hotspot

The village of Bonnybridge in Stirlingshire seems to be a hotspot for UFOs.


Which some think means it's a window to another dimension.

They even want a UFO visitors' centre to be built in the village.

So is Scotland a great holiday spot for visitors from out of this world?

Or could the sightings be explained by the large number of airbases across the country?
