Oban, Scotland is located in a remote area of the western coastline on the Firth of Lorn, which is protected by Kerrera Island. After a visit to the city in 1814, Sir Walter Scott was inspired to write his famous poem, ‘The Lord of the Isles’. The poem stirred up interest in the area and brought many new visitors to the town. Today the town is supported mainly by tourism, though the area has been populated since the Mesolithic era.

Known as the “gateway to the Highlands”, Perth is located in central Scotland along the River Tay. A truly ancient land, the surrounding area is known to have been occupied some 8,000 years ago by Mesolithic hunter-gatherers. In more recent history, Perth came to prominence when it was once regarded as the capital of Scotland, due to being the frequent residence of the Scottish royal court and the home of the “stone of destiny,” on which the Scottish kings were crowned. Even after the Scottish royalty were long gone, Perth’s trade relationships with mainland Europe helped it become one of the richest burghs in the country. Today it is home to over 47,000 residents.
Known as the capital of the Highlands, Inverness was established no later than the 6th century and has been the site of many important events in Scottish history. The area was once ruled by the Gaelic king Mac Bethad Mac Findláich (MacBeth) and has been occupied by the Celts, Picts, Gaels, Romans, and Vikings throughout history.
Over 8,000 years old, Aberdeen is currently the third largest city in Scotland. Historically an important trading hub, the city’s economy boomed with the discovery of oil in the North Sea during the 1970’s. Aberdeen became home to the North Sea oil operations and as a result, the city has become top earner for the country.
Though December in London is considered the off-peak tourist season, there is still much to see and do. The London Underground Tube and Riverboat routes allow for easy travel in and around the city, while the winter air and smaller crowds make the city far more comfortable to tour around in.

Welcome back vape fans! Today we will be exploring St Andrews, located on the east coast of Scotland. Previously known as Muckross, the earliest records of the area show that it was founded as a religious settlement in 370 ACE. After changing names several times, the town became known as it is today due to its claim as the burial site for several of the bones of the apostle Andrew. Today, St. Andrews is less known as a religious site and more well known for its historical contributions to the game of golf.
