Scotland is located in the north of the United Kingdom, and has only a direct border with England. It has more than 700 islands, mostly to the north and west. Scotland is widely known for its rich history and heritage, and its stunning nature: hills, forests, green fields, mountains, valleys, and of course its rugged coastline.
Edinburgh: Most well-known for its castle, this city is filled with medieval relics. In 2004, it was the first city to receive the title Unesco City of Literature. Worth a visit are the Edinburgh Castle, Craigmillar Castle, the Abbey and Palace of Holyroodhouse, Mary King's Close, Gladstone's Land, Greyfriars Kirkyard, the Camera Obscura, the Scottish Parliament, Grassmarket area, the Scott Monument, the Royal Yacht Britannia, the Royal Botanic Garden, the Rosslyn Chapel, the National Museum of Scotland, the Royal Museum, the National Gallery of Scotland, and many other museums and monuments.
Glasgow: The biggest city of Scotland, which also is a Unesco City of Music. It is mostly visited for shopping and its many museums, several of which are free. Visit the Glasgow Cathedral, the City Chambers, the Glasgow Cross, Glasgow Central Station, the Willow Tea Rooms, the Glasgow School of Art, the Mitchell Library, the Clyde Auditorium, the Glasgow University, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Glasgow Police Museum, the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens, and many more.
Aberdeen: The third largest city of Scotland is mostly known for its oil industry and its granite architecture. That is why it is often referred to as the Oil Capital of Europe, or the Granite City. Other than that, it is also known for its many parks, gardens and floral displays, and of course its long beach. The city has many museums and monuments, such as the Aberdeen Art Gallery, the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, its Granite Architecture, the Union Terrace Gardens, the Winter Gardens, the Johnston Gardens, the Gordon Highlanders Museum, the Tolbooth Museum, the King's Museum, or the Zoology Museum.
Dundee: Well known for its three J’s: jute, jam and journalism. There used to be a lot of textile factories at Dundee, and the boats with jute from the Indian sub-continent used to arrive here. Most of those factories are now converted into apartments or offices. Dundee is the original home of marmalade. There are many farms around the city that grew berries to make the excellent jam. Lastly, it is the home of the Dandy and Beano comics. Dundee is the UK’s first Unesco City of Design. Worth a stop are the McManus Galleries, Broughty Castle, the Mills Observatory, the Dundee Science Centre, the Tay Rail Bridge, the Verdant Works, the Frigate Unicorn Ship, the Dundee Law Volcano, and the Camperdown Wildlife Park.
Inverness: The most northern city of Great Britain, widely known as the Gateway to the Scottish Highlands. It is also the place to be to visit the Loch Ness with its famous monster. The river Ness, well known for its salmon fishing, runs through the city. Other than that, you can visit the Inverness Castle, the Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, the Old High Church, which is the oldest church of Inverness, and the ShipSpace, an interactive nautical museum.
Perth: Once the capital of Scotland, Perth is now a quiet city mostly known for giving its name to the cities in Australia and Canada. It is often referred to as the Fair City since the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s story ‘Fair Maid of Perth’. Worth a stop are the Scone Palace, St. John's Kirk, St Ninian's Cathedral, the Black Watch Museum, Perth Museum & Art Gallery, Fergusson Gallery, and the Elcho Castle.
St Andrews: This town hosts the oldest university of Scotland, and the third oldest one in the English speaking countries. But the town is also known as the home of Golf, having one of the oldest and most famous golf clubs in the world. The university buildings and the golf courses are of course the most visited places, but there are also lots of other highlights, such as the St Andrews Botanic Garden, the St Andrews Preservation Trust Museum and Gardens, the British Golf Museum, St Andrews Museum, St Andrews Castle, St Andrews Cathedral and St Rule's Tower, theLade Braes Walk, and its three beaches: West Sands, East Sands, and Castle Sands.
Scotland has many airports, four of which have international flights: Aberdeen International Airport, Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport, and Glasgow Prestwick International Airport.
