On the company's website, the listing for Scotland read: "And finally, the world's most beautiful country is revealed: Scotland. Who can deny that these wild beaches, deep lochs and craggy castles are some of the most wonderful and beautiful sights in the world?"
Malcolm Roughead, the chief executive of Visit Scotland, was thrilled with the result.
"We are delighted that Scotland has received this remarkable accolade from Rough Guide readers," Roughhead said. "But of course it will not be a surprise to anyone who has encountered our wonderful country."
"From our awe-inspiring landscapes to our remarkable historic attractions, to our bustling but beautiful urban centres, Scotland takes people's breaths away."
