The Stranger Side of Scotland

Scotland Map 1827
Map of Scotland from 1827

Scotland is an ancient country. It has a long history, beautiful scenery and a great cultural heritage.

It's also home to some very weird, unusual and downright strange stuff. In the Scots tongue: streenge.

Strange and Interesting Facts is a site for the most interesting stuff in and about Scotland. The site will cover the usual tourist destinations and attractions, however the emphasis will be on the strange.

From Haggis to Hauntings
From Burke & Hare to Inspector Rebus.
From the Loch Ness Monster to UFO hotspots

If it's Scottish and it's interesting then it's right for this site. I'm basically trying to answer the question: "What are some interesting facts about Scotland?".

For the record, I'm not a Scot myself. I'm an Englishman who "saw the light" and moved to Edinburgh some years ago. Scotland's a great country, I hope you find it as interesting as I do.
