As the proud possessors of a fiercely independent creative heritage, the Scots were a race apart even before Hadrian built the wall.
Scotland has produced an indomitable bunch of fighters, builders, thinkers and drinkers, poets, players and pedagogues that have shaped the course of modern history. "Scotland: 1,000 Things You Need To Know" is the real McCoy, a comprehensive guide to Caledonia and its remarkable people.
