    ... And proud of it! When I lived down in

    England for a while, and when I have travelled further afield, I've always made sure to take my kilt with me and wear it whenever possible - the warm reaction the vast majority of people give you when they realise you are a Scot always fills the heart with pride. Always will be...

    Highlighting Scotland’s struggle

    for independence in 2014In 2014, I started seeing these little blue stickers all over the place – all proudly saying “Yes” over a Scottish flag. I quickly decided I wanted pictures of them. In five years, they’re going to be a part of history. Whether we...

    I Am Very Scottish

    On my mother's side, I am descended from pure scottish blood.  We claim the MacKay clan, but we are also linked to the Grants (including Ullysses Grant, distantly) and Walkers.  My legacy goes back to Pictou Nova Scotia and then to Edinborough and Glasgow and a couple of small...

    My family comes from the Graham

    or Graeme clan in Scotland, and I have a Scottish temper to match. They eventually moved to England before continuing on to the United States. But I don't care what you say, I will NEVER try haggis.

    There is something absolutely unique about

    being Scottish. Not just the heritage, or the accent, or the beautiful country, but something in the genes. It's hard to define, but you know it's there and it affects you in everything you do, say, and feel. Other people sense it too, and when they realise you're from Scotland...
