Who's Scottish?

My grandpa was pure unfiltered angry old Scotsman, and my dad has the eyebrows to prove it. I can play connect the dots with my freckles, my cellphone ring is Scotland the Brave, I have a huge Scottish flag in my room and the Clann is Stuart. I love being Scottish!

Yep.

A fair number of Irish people will also have Scottish ancestry and vice versa.....even though they deny it.

I'm part Irish, Scottish and English. I guess half of me hates the other half of me. Oh, and I'm German, too.

I have been to Ireland, Scotland and England on holiday, but not to Germany yet.

We have a wonderful local outdoor Scottish Festival here in May, complete with Highland Games and a Piping Competition. I wouldn't miss it for the world.

If it's not Scottich it's cr r r a a p!

I am Scottish [about 75%] - the leftover is French-Canadian/Irish and Cherokee.

I went to Scotland years ago and it was an epiphany - "These are my people!" [I was adopted by some German/Polish family so I grew up as the sun burned freckled red headed relation to a bunch of East European stock]

I found my birthparents years back and the clan is Urquhart - and the castle Urquhart stands on the shores of Loch Ness. It's the ruins you see in the tourist photos.

In fact, there is a campaign to save Urquhart Castle from devopers wrecking ball: Save Urquhart Castle

Though I am not Scottish, I did participate in the Great Haggis Hunt on the Scotsman website which runs from (I think Nov 30) to Robbie Burns Day on Jan 25. I did bag a couple of haggis, no golden haggis though. Didn't win anything either, but it was lots of fun!
