ten reasons you'll wish you were Scottish...

1. The men wear kilts. And yes. They ALL look like this guy... ;)

2. The place is full of castles. More than enough for one each. Of course once you have one YOU get to pay to heat it!

3. You get to experience 4 distinct seasons - because everyone gets fed up with too much sun. Right??!

4.You can wear your tartan with pride. And if you don't want to wear it, you can force your pets to do it for you.

5. We're the only people in the world who know how to bring in the New Year properly! ;) It takes a massive street party, lots of fireworks and far too much whisky...

6. And after Hogmanay what better way to deal with your hangover, and bring in the new year, than to take a nice wee dip in a frozen Scottish river?

7. We have our own genuine monster. And no, Donald Trump doesn't count...

8. We have the sexiest accent on the planet. Here's an example. Gerard Butler could be talking about anything and you wouldn't care. Or possibly even notice!

9. There are never any queues for a toilet in Scotland and here's why:

10. And no matter what happens, we can always watch the historically accurate movie, Braveheart, and renew our sense of national pride! ;)


  1. Triple yes to number 8

    1. I have the same accent as Gerard, but I could still listen to him all day, Erica! :)
