Invergordon, Scotland: The Town of Murals.

One of the most charming towns I’ve visited, Invergordon gives off the vibe that not many unpleasant things happen here. Located off the Port of Invergordon, it’s a quaint, cheerful, colorful little Scottish town with a population of approximately 4,000. However, while small, it’s known world-wide for its vibrant and colorful public murals sprinkled about …
