Scotland

"Oh Flower of Scotland.....

........di dum di da, di dum di da

........di dum di di dum di.......

.......not very many people actually know all the words of this, our national song. Well, maybe "Auld Lang Syne" is our most famous, but that doesn't stop us joining in with great emotion and gusto.

Same with "My love is like a red red rose  that's dum di dum di dum.... a song by our most famous poet Rabbie Burns.

What we have here in Scotland, as well as poets and The Loch Ness Monster, is History, and lots of it. We have the Castles and Medieval halls for real. And we hope to get a minute in the near future to take some photos to show you the real McCoy.

We have lots of sheep, so some fabulous wools and cloths. We can be sure you've heard of Harris Tweed and Shetland Wool.  And as we are famous for our engineering skills, you won't be surprised to know that we have great architecture and design.  Again bear with us, and we'll get round to showing you some.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh is another famous Scot, and so we have a link to The Hunterian Museum, where you can see some of his most famous work in the Hill House.

For a taste of our strange humour, I thought you might like to meet Mr McGonagall, a very favourite , albeit less known Scottish poet, so another web site to visit.

On a more serious note, we would like to build up a section to show work by local artisans and craftspeople, so if you're out there get in touch.

And of course we couldn't leave without showing you some tartan for the time being.

Meanwhile, the country itself is beautiful of course, and just in case you're thinking of visiting, we've popped in a few more sites of interest .
