Major Towns and Cities in Central Scotland

Kelvingrove, Glasgow, Architecture, Building, Museum

Glasgow is the third largest city in the United Kingdom, with the highest population density of any Scottish city. That said, it is fairly compact and easy to get around in, and it is known for the friendliness of the locals.

The city is also famous for its culture and style, with a mixture of museums and galleries, energetic nightlife and high end shops. And, if you love architecture, within the city centre you can view remarkable Victorian structures which were designed by the legendary Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Kelvingrove, one of Glasgow’s most loved parks, is set on the banks of the River Kelvin and its history can be traced back to 1450. Glasgow is translated from Gaelic, meaning “dear green place”, which is reflected by the extraordinary variety of parks and gardens to be found within this busy city.

Edinburgh, Arthur'S Seat, Scotland

Edinburgh, a capital city since the 15th century, is located on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth. With a population of over 1,330,480, this city is the seventh most populous in the United Kingdom. Edinburgh is known as a centre of education in the fields of medicine, sciences and engineering, and the University of Edinburgh is placed 17th in the QS World University Rankings in 2013 and 2014.

Edinburgh has two major railway stations, Waverly and Haymarket, which run to other parts of Scotland and the UK on a regular basis. Edinburgh also has a few other railway stations, including ScotRail’s Caledonian Sleeper, which is a popular overnight service which runs between Edinburgh and London every night.

Edinburgh is home to the Museum of Childhood, where people of all ages can explore the 21 rooms filled with over 2,000 items, toys and games, for free. Set across two historic buildings, this is well worth visiting and a favourite of the locals.

Golf, Carnoustie Golf Hotel, Scotland

Dundee

Dundee is Scotland’s fourth biggest city, with the second highest population density of any Scottish city. Dundee is home to many large employers, with huge job opportunities to be found here. Alongside Dundee is Angus, a historic county where you can go on long hikes, bike rides and play golf, all within minutes of the busy city.

Dundee also has its own airport, which is known as the gateway to the home of golf. Here flights can be caught to London’s Stanstead Airport, and small private aircraft can also use this terminal. Near Dundee, in the council area of Angus, is Carnoustie Country which has 30 courses, all within a 40 minute drive. This ensures there’s a diversity of courses for locals and tourists alike, to suit all players from seasoned golfers to beginners. Within this area is the world famous Carnoustie championship course, which is one of the best and most challenging courses.
