Q: This country has over 700 islands, 130 of which are inhabited. 

A: Welcome to Scotland! While mainland Scotland attracts thousands visitors with scotch distilleries, castles, highlands, and the mysterious Loch Ness, there is also much to discover out on the water. Even beyond the amazing Isle of Skye, Scotland's islands are stunningly beautiful. Island hopping is not just for the tropics anymore!


Q: Where was the world's first transport company established in 1498?

A: The "Shores Porters Society" in Aberdeen is the world's oldest transport company, still in business today. Aberdeen is also home to the first recorded business in the UK: the Aberdeen Harbor Board, founded in 1136. Visit Scotland...
