The Best on the Web - Scotland in Europe

On this website of Leith, Scotland’s historic oldest port, you can discover more about its significance through time and the many momentous visitors to the area. There’s also an old map of Leith and ideas for guided walks around the area, so you can discover the port for yourself.

This unique historical village on the east coast of Scotland is the birthplace of St Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow and this website captures the character and rich history of Culross well. You can take a tour through the cobbled streets of the village in the photo-gallery, find out about the local history, places to visit and events happening in the area. Visitors to the website can also contribute to an online gallery with their own pictures of this living museum.

If reading about the wine trade in Leith has made you thirsty for more history of the humble grape, this extensive well presented site will guide you through the significant time periods and locations of the wine trade.
