There are so many Scottish customs and traditions that we can only touch the surface here. But people from all four corners of the globe know that we are nation rich in history and culture, and many of our traditions have been adopted throughout the world. If I asked 1,000 people from around the world what they associated with Scotland or Scottish customs and traditions, we would get a variety of answers. To some it would be the scenery, to others whisky or golf, or some of the folklore such as Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. Other folk would think of men in kilts and Highland dancing; while others might think of bagpipe music. Perhaps some scientists among us might think of all the inventions made by famous Scots such as the telephone and television or the discovery of penicillin, while others might remember that the great philanthropist Andrew Carnegie was a Scot.
