When Thomas Rawlinson, an English native invented the kilt he was english !
As for bagpipes, they originated from the middle east.:doh: :)

Whoaaaaaaa, hold on a minute!!! Your Englishman only adopted a new design for the kilt as it is worn today but we Scots went one further. Rather than spend money on a new skirt and a matching blouse we made our own from one piece of material known as the braided plaid:D I've made and worn one before and there's quite a nak to it. Bloody comfy I have to say if not a touch breezy:rolling:

What the....?

Find the first reference in a book about people breathing or farting....does that mean that the first time people breathed or farted was when it was first written in a book?

NO!

It means it was the first time someone thought, hey, I should write this down...

As they say in the movie Braveheart, "History is written by those who can afford to write it down." Def not by those who actaully make history happen.

Neeps : turnip or swede

tatties : spuds

Anyway our national food these days is deep fried Mars bars:D

And they were invented in Stonehaven Aberdeenshire [unless some rich historian wrote about them back in the dark ages]

Mars Bars were a Scottish Invention:confused: I'm pretty sure we're the leading pioneers in obesity and heart disease too. Jeez, I'm so proud to be a Scot:rolling:
