Aberdeen itself is clearly a fascinating city; having produced not one, but three Nobel Laureates (these being JJR Macleod (1923); John Boyd Orr (1949) and RLM Synge (1952)); boasts many ‘firsts’ and has an interesting history with a huge variety of fascinating and perhaps little known factoids that make any Aberdonian proud of their heritage:
