    ​Ever since I was little I've been drawn to

    Scotland, and England too really... it's all just so beautiful, magical and mystical to me. I love the countryside, the medieval ruins and the strength and humor of the people. Kilts are nice too, as are those cute furry cows :) My fascination probably started with Arthurian...

    I traced my Scottish ancestors back to a little

    town north of Glasgow with a population of 400 currently. They were fishermen and crofters. Couple years ago I was able to visit Scotland, to walk on the ground that my great-great-great-great grandparents walked on. We rented a little boat and fished at the head of the loch...

    Scottish Islander And Highlander

    Time For Another Trip

    It was over a decade ago when I decided to give my girls a taste of one slice of their ancestry. It was Christmas, and I was big on themes back then. So we had a wee bit of a Scottish Christmas, with kilt-wearing teddy bears and shortbread for each daughter. Wish I could say...

    Finding Out

    I have both Highland

    and Lowland (Borders) Scots blood... my mother's line includes MacLaines of Lochbuie (we think - spellings were far from standardized back then!), and my father's, Bordermen of Selkirk. In fact, one of his ancestors, and thus mine, was Mayor of Selkirk when Sir Walter Scott was...

    My Boss Once Told Me It Was Because The English Were Invaded So Often

    He was quite right though. However. On my Mother's side of the family we are closely linked to the Clarkes and the Drysdales. My middle name is Bruce. My father named me that after guess who? 'Robert the Bruce'. He persevered. He succeeded. His story is a salutary lesson in life...

    My maternal grandmother comes from the line of

    Robert the Bruce. Recently had a family tree paid for and our family is linked to Robert as well as the Keith clan. I believe it's Keith, if anyone's interested I can get the specifics. Proud of it too, even though my grandma was threatened to be shot in Ireland. :-)

    My paternal grandparents came to this country in 1908 (independently--they met here).  Unfortunately they both had passed away before I was born.  Nevertheless, my dad & aunt kept the flame as I grew up hearing them singing 'Loch Lomond' & "I love a lassie," playing records of...
