Yes, I Love Scotland!
I love Scotland so much I have spent years researching and writing articles about it for the web, for magazines and for newsletters. What appears on this website are some of the more serious articles I've produced. The photo above was taken by Ron Henderson, my friend in Scotland, who hikes and photographs Scotland, so avidly.
I have been to Scotland three times, to Ireland and Nova Scotia once each, and to other parts of Canada and the United States where the Scottish, Irish and Scotch-Irish races have affected these countries. My own Scottish families come from the Isle of Skye off the western coast of Scotland (Clan Donald), from Caithness located in a heavily Viking influenced northeast corner of Scotland (Clan Gunn), and from the Aberdeen area located in the mid-eastern portion of Scotland (Clan Davidson). However, the family was tied up with nearly every district of Scotland and with most of its more important historical events.
Part of the family moved to Ulster, or Northern Ireland, to become part of the very first people to be called the Scotch-Irish. After a couple hundred years there, my family moved on to Colonial America, spreading up into Canada and down into Mexico. Even the Caribbean saw my family there as early as 1655 in Jamaica.
By studying my own family history I learned so much about all of Scotland's history and have written thousands of words on the subject. And so I reprint some of them here, FREE, for your enjoyment.
