Glasgow, Scotland's largest city,was once one of the world's leading industrial cities and now lies at the centre of the Greater Glasgow conurbation. The water surrounding Scotland consist of a large sector of the North Atlantic and the North Sea, containing the largest oil reserves in the European Union. This has given Aberdeen, the third-largest city in Scotland, the title of Europe's oil capital.
