A guest post promoting cottages in Scotland:
Without doing the statistics Scotland seems to have produced a disproportionate quantity of great people. Be they writers, statesmen, academics, inventors or significant from a variety of other walkers Scotland has been prodigious. Though many of these great people have been adopted as British they all hail from Scotland and it is a fascinating element to a holiday to trace some of the roots of some of these great Scotsmen. Why not pick your Scottish cottages near where they were brought up or worked?
