Scotland, not as populous as England, comes second as far as the populations of countries in the UK are concerned. Even though population density is vastly lower, there is still a significant number of area codes in place, and they serve the same purpose as anywhere else - to geographically identify the position a landline is located in. Nowadays this is not an essential feature for many, with instant messaging, cell phones and the Internet in general, but if we go back just a couple dozen of years, it was invaluable. And since landlines are still very much in use, even if not so extensively, they should prove to be important still. Use this page to find a specific area code in Scotland.
