Default Scottish Cities

To all friends North of the border!

Quiz on over here in the UK the question was 'How many cities are there in Scotland?'

Options 2,4 or 6

I think there is seven, can anyone confirm this?

They said the answer was six but I thought Elgin was a city, it states that is on the web, but is that in name only?

TBH - I thought Perth could also be a city!

Paisley is a town ith a bigger population than Inverness and Stirling Cities,
The Fair City of Perth hasn't been recognised as a city since 1972
Stirling is the youngest city having been awarded that status in 2002 -Queens Jubilee

So Aberdeen,Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow,Inverness and Stirling are the current six official cities.

Elgin was but is no longer

BUT! Read this

Since the 1996 reorganisation, two more Scottish cities have been designated: Inverness as part of the millennium celebrations, and Stirling in 2002, to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's Golden Jubilee. In the case of both these cities, there are no city councils and no formal boundaries, and the letters patent simply state that the "town" has the status. In January 2008, a petition to matriculate armorial bearings for the City of Inverness was refused by Lord Lyon King of Arms on the grounds that there is no corporate body or legal persona to whom arms can be granted.
