Scotland

Edinburgh
Capital city and the pride of the Mayoress Miss Jean Brodie who is so old she is known as Old Creaky. Called the Athens of the north, by people who haven’t seen Athens.

Place where there’s not much to do but toss the caber.

Tossing the caber
Saps your energy if you do it before a run.

Twinned with Baghdad.

What they have to do every night to stop the monster stealing the water.

1745 Rebellion
A particularly nasty fight in The William Wallis-Simpson public house in a small mountain village when the landlord, a Mr Tam O’Shanter, tried to end the traditional happy-hour at quarter to six. This became known as the Highland Clearance.

What Scots frogs do in the spring.

Hogmanay
Money to buy sausages and bacon

The Order of the Thistle
T, H, I…

We’re doomed!
