Age 1

The Visit of King George IV was organized by Sir Walter Scott two years after the Radical War ended. For the celebration of the visit, the creation of the Tartan Kilts came about and were worn by all men attending the celebration. These types of kilts have become part of Scotland's national identity.

1854 · Great North of Scotland Railway

Age 33

Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.
