Scotland is made up of nine regions (Highland, Grampian, Tayside, Fife, Lothian, Central, Borders, Strathclyde, and Dumfries and Galloway). These regions are then divided into districts, and three island authorities -Orkney Islands, Shetland Islands, and Western Isles which have the larger part of the 787 islands that make up Scotland.

Glasgow was originally founded in around 1175AD. Located on the banks of the River Clyde, Glasgow was once a world centre for shipbuilding, producing such famous names as the QE2, Britannia and the Cutty Sark. Glasgow is Scotland's second and largest city and gateway to the beautiful West Coast and the Highlands of Scotland.
