The Scottish Tag !!!

 

Where is your favourite place to visit in Scotland ? – Emm …probably  Glasgow because of it’s great music scene as I like gigs , or Livingston for the shopping . Else that  Inchcolm because of the great ruins and it’s a nice wee trip.

Where would you like to visit in Scotland ? -The Outer Hebrides as I wan’t to go somewhere quiet that had beautiful scenery . Scottish cities I would like to visit are Aberdeen because I’ve never been there. And Glasgow as I wan’t to check out the culture and Art scene .

What Is your favourite Scottish film? – Eh to be honest there’s not that many Scottish films out there apart from Trainspotting which I haven’t watched as I’ve never read the book so wouldn’t want to ruin it , although I’ve heard the film is very good. I’m gonna say Open Season even though it’s not a Scottish film but it has Billy Connolly in it (oh well) . Also It’s not a film but Waterloo Road because it was my favourite program. #bringbackwaterlooroad

Do you match up to any Scottish Stereotypes? Probably. I used to do Scottish Highland dancing when I was younger. I also don’t eat that healthily. And I’m quite frugal with my money.

What Is your favourite Scottish food ? –  I like shortbread and also Scottish fish such as haddock that you get from the chippy. Although I’m gonna be honest and say I’m not a big fan of Irn-Bru. (Or my stomach isn’t would be more accurate)

Do you follow any Scottish Traditions ? – eh I celebrate Hogmany but I think that is it. Hogmany is quite a big thing in Scotland. Scottish people really like a party. We have two cultural holidays on the side of Christmas and Easter . St Andrews day and Burns night.  We like to use these night as an excuse to have a ceilidh ( a Scottish dance party.)

What Is Your favourite Scottish word? – Aye diny Ken ??

What Is Your Favourite Scottish Song – ooooohh There is so many!!!!! My favourite band are Glaswegian so I’m gonna have to say  Free by Twin Atlantic (Great Song!!) . Or Auld Lyne Syne.

Cultural Inspiration !!

This is the post excerpt.

I’ve started a lot of blogs in the past but none that have really hit it off. Yet today I started this blog a Scottish Lassie and It feels like I’ve hit the nail on the head Finally. I thought about making a blog on a lot of things books , music , leftism but they all seem very generic and I’m not sure if I’m an outstanding enough reviewer to survive against the hundreds of  blogs on these topics out there. So I thought whats close to home? what is there about me that isn’t dull that I would like to be defined by? My culture of course! I come from Scotland and our culture isn’t something you could run out of writing about quickly for such a small population everyone knows we are a power house when it comes to the arts , sciences and recipes. America may have burgers but it will never beat a fried mars bar , England may have Easterners but can compete against Harry potter , Sherlock homes , and Doctor Who …… I think not !!! Music they can have Justine Bieber any day we have Biffy , Twin Atlantic , Frightened Rabbit .And our language is the brawest of them all. Should I go on ………

  • Tunnock’s Tea Cakes
  • Penicillin
  • Andy Murray
  • Sectarianism
  • The telly
  • coos
  • oats – We conquered hunger.
  • Aileen Paterson
  • Bagpipes
  • SQUARE SAUSAGE – HOW CAN WE NOT BE THE BEST COUNTRY WHEN WE LITERALLY INVENTED SAUSAGE IN THE SHAPE OF A SQUARE !!!!!!

OK you get the picture ,

other country’s may have their riches but it will never beat our whisky. 🙂
