EdinburghEdinburgh City is the capital of Scotland. Other important places in this part of Scotland are Aberdeen, Dundee and Inverness in the North.

AberdeenAberdeen City is Scotland's third most populous city, one of Scotland's 32 local government council areas and the United Kingdom's, 37th most populous built-up area.

Nicknames are include the Granite City, the Grey City and the Silver City with the Golden Sands. During the mid-18th to mid-20th centuries, Aberdeen's buildings incorporated locally quarried grey granite, which can sparkle like silver because of its high mica content.

Since the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s, other nickname is 'the Oil Capital of the World' or 'the Energy Capital of the World'. The area around Aberdeen has been inhabited since at least 8,000 years, when prehistoric villages lay around the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don. The city has a long, sandy coastline and a marine climate, the latter resulting in chilly summers and mild winters.

Aberdeen received Royal Burgh status from David I of Scotland (1124–53) transforming the city economically. The city's universitie, the University of Aberdeen, is founded in 1495, and Robert Gordon University, which was awarded university status in 1992, make Aberdeen the educational centre of the north-east of Scotland.
The traditional industries of fishing, paper-making, vesselbuilding, and textiles have been overtaken by the oil industry and Aberdeen's seaport.

DundeeDundee City is Scotland's fourth-largest city. It lies within the eastern central Lowlands on the north bank of the Firth of Tay. Under the name of Dundee City, it forms one of the 32 council areas used for local government in Scotland.

Historically part of the county of Angus, the city developed into a Burgh in the late 12th century and established itself as an important trading port on the east coast. Rapid expansion was brought by the Industrial Revolution, particularly in the 19th century when Dundee was the centre of the global jute industry. This, along with its other major industries gave Dundee its label as the city of "jute, jam and journalism".

InvernessInvernessshire is a city in the Scottish Highlands. It is the administrative centre for the Highland council area and is regarded as the capital of the Highlands. It is the northernmost city in the United Kingdom and lies within the Great Glen (Gleann Mòr) at its north-eastern extremity where the River Ness enters the Moray Firth.

Inverness lies near two important battle sites: the 11th-century battle of Blàr nam Fèinne against Norway which took place on The Aird and the 18th-century Battle of Culloden which took place on Culloden Moor.

At the latest, a settlement was established by the 6th century with the first royal charter being granted by Dabíd mac Maíl Choluim (King David I) in the 12th century.
The Gaelic king Mac Bethad Mac Findláich (MacBeth) whose 11th-century murder of King Duncan was immortalised in Shakespeare's play Macbeth, held a castle within the city where he ruled as Mormaer of Moray and Ross.
