I know this may sound a bit weird, but I live near Glasgow and I'm currently looking to get some new ink. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations of any artists?! Cheers in advance!

I’m not sure I can help personally. I’m actually trying to find a decent place myself. So hopefully maybe some followers could help out :)

I have no idea what Troon is like sorry, it’s not far from where my family is from but that’s all I can really go on. Maybe some followers can give more insight. :)

I'm an American and would like to apologies for all the American assholes out there. My trip to Scotland was wonderful and it was made better by all the scots who were friendly and made me apart of their family! Not all Americans are douche bags, but the ones who are ruin it for everyone! On behalf of me and mine, I am sorry and if I see anyone treating a Scotsman ( or anyone else) like that, they get a good head butt to the nose! Wha daurs meddle wi me!

No need to apologise for the behaviour of other rude individuals. I’ve been to America 3 times and had a great time and everyone I met there was friendly and curious. So it’s definitely not a majority that behave like that. We get assholes wherever we go unfortunately. 






14 Places You’d Never Believe Were In Scotland

Snow-capped mountains, palm trees, turquoise seas… Scotland really does have it all. If it wasn’t for the midges, it would be pretty much perfect.






Anonymous asked you:
afaik the University of the Highlands & Islands is the only one with a campus in Inverness but you might have to travel for specific courses. Otherwise you're looking at Aberdeen for unis close-ish

Hey. Thanks for answering with some info. 






Anonymous asked you:
do you know any universities more near the highlands area (like Inverness) with a good computer science course ?

Personally I don’t know but there might be someone who follows that might be able to help out if they don’t mind :)
