For the Love of Scotland

For the Love of Scotland  РA Celebration of All Things Scottish

Being asked to write about Scotland is not a difficult thing. Writing about Scotland is.

It’s a country in which a lot has happened.

Now every country could say that but what country has people like these in its history?

  • William Wallace
  • St Columba
  • Robert the Bruce
  • David Livingstone
  • Mary, Queen of Scots
  • Bonnie Prince Charlie
  • Sean Connery
  • Billy Connolly
  • Neil Armstrong

Not many.

When you add up the history, culture, sport, food & drink, locations, geography and climate, the problem for the aspiring Scottish book writer is not what to put in but what to leave out. This proved to be the case. There is so much to include that inevitably some things were only touched upon, or were left 0ut.

There would have been more about the Cocteau Twins and the Jesus and Mary Chain if space permitted.
