my fav part of scottish history is that during the writting of the american constitution there was if i remember correctly 6 scots who helped write and signed both that and the declaration of independace also the head of one of the greatest universaties ever was a scot and he was in charge of Yale....so in a sense scotland helped develop one of the top countries in the world that is america

ARRRGG!! You can't talk of buckie on a scottish thread it comes from the dark overlords country !!!!

Fine things from scotland:

Peter Pan - JM Barrie

Steam Engine - Stephenson
Penicillin - Flemming

Okies just a few that spring to mind and I am sure that I could name an equal amount of heroic englishmen.

Funny little idea that England subsidises scotland ... there was alot of money injected into the UK economy in the 1970s wonder where that came from
