Heritage CQ - Scotland

castle ruins
 I never knew a whole lot a bout Scotland before researching it for this block and
boy what a hard scrabble horrible life it must have been

fought over and persecuted like a dog toy by just about everyone it seems

warrior men

thistle and the lion
and they are still fighting (albeit legally now) for their independence

they are a hearty lot

go here to learn why
the blue ribbon 

not much more to tell, though the history is interesting, bloody and convoluted thanks to the French and the English who have fought over the general region since they could cross the channel

the scots are a simple people who like things to be simple so I didn't muck about to much with embellishments on this one
