Since before Hadrian built the wall, the Scots have been a race apart - fighters, builders, thinkers and drinkers, poets, players and pedagogues, proud of a fiercely independent creative heritage. Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know is the essential guide to the land and people, containing a wealth of information on all things Scottish.
How does the clan system work? Why is Irn Bru spelled like that? How many kings of Scotland died in bed? When should you use the word 'Scotch'? What actually is in a haggis? And who on earth decided that the Declaration of Arbroath was a cornerstone of modern democracy?
Proudly celebrating Scottish achievement, fearlessly debunking sentiment and mythmaking, Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know is the real McCoy.
