Did You Know?
- Nicknames of Scottish Towns

National Gallery of Scotland

Here's a list of the nicknames applied at times to a selection of Scottish cities and towns. In some cases, it's the residents rather than the town itself that carry the nickname. If you have any additions to the list, drop an e-mail to Scottie.

The illustration here is of the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh - the "Athens of the North".
