Many think that Bermuda is part of the Caribbean islands or perhaps the US. It is not. It is an island in the North Atlantic, a British Overseas Territory but administered independently as a country. The Premier of Bermuda is the head of the government and the leader of the ruling party in the elected House of Assembly. However, Bermuda is not a sovereign state. Bermuda's Governor is appointed by Her Majesty The Queen of England on the advice of the British Prime Minister.
The highest point in the island is known as 'Town Hill' and has an altitude of only about 259 feet (79 meters) and is located in Smiths parish
