    I just * love being Scottish.

    Celtic, Music, history, culture, scenery, Highlands, castles, haggis, Irn Bru, golf, friendliness, tartan, Islands, beaches, hills, mountains, lochs, me, my mrs, my mates, the saltire, William Wallace, bagpipes, black pudding, tattie scones, smokies, adversity, the underdog, art, innovation, gaming, some crackin birds.

    Oh, and the feeling when you come home from being out of the country for a bit, particularly if I’ve been in England. Swerving from the OP here but when you see the back pages of the paper and it’s NOT about the EPL and you hear Scottish accents again, feels great.

    used to feel the same when i was working down in london.
    best part of being down there was coming back up, especially when i drove up or got the train and you crossed the border, then you felt like ''i'm back home''. but the best part was that i could talk normal, instead of talking slow and ''proper'' so the english could understand what i was saying. one of my favorite things down there was when some english guy was talking to me, i would stop them and say ''sorry mate can you speak slower, i can't understand a word your saying''. that really * them off.

    Very proud of a lot of elements of the history of Ireland.

    The country today, for the most part, not so much.

    Not much. As Mark Renton famously said "It's * being Scottish".

    Hard to be proud of being part of a nation that has such a bad case of Stockholm Syndrome that it becomes the first nation ever to vote against it's own Independence in favour of being ruled by a neighbouring country that has raped, pillaged and plundered us for centuries.
