The site for all Scots, Scots descendants and Scotophiles, right across the world     

A light-hearted e-magazine with facts, figures, folklore, photographs; with lots of wee bits  of general info about Scotland - and some big bits. A site for folk to read, browse and, if you like - contribute to.


In WEE BITS, in The Mag., thre's an article on the correct colour of Blue for The Saltire WELCOME to Find it in Scotland. The site's navigation menu Main Headings are down the left-hand panel. Click on these to see what's in each one. Some sections have a LOT in them.

Find it, in Scotland ??? ...  
...This Website is for Scots and Scotophiles- where'er ye might be - by Scots, to Scots, from Scots. It's for Scots abroad to meet other Scots - abroad, or at home in Scotland. It's for Scots anywhere to glean a wee bit more about their own roots; to keep a finger on the pulse of Scotland and things Scottish; to learn a bit more about your Language, Heritage, Traditions...  STAC POLLAIDH (STACK POLLY) IN THE NORTHWEST, BETWEEN ULLAPPOL & LOCHINVER

 Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me!'s about History and Current Affairs;  Sports and Crafts; Art and Literature; Business and Pleasure, and how & where to find them... AND it's one of the few sites to have it's own  ongoing  Magazine section, with regular updates about Scotland, Scots, and Things Scottish.

  ...It's also for Scots to talk to other Scots, home and abroad. Perhaps to try to find lost friends and relatives. We've set up a link with an  interactive social network section - "Scot-talk"   - where SUNBLEACHED SANDS ON THE LOVELY ISLE OF TIREEmembers (membership is free) can Blog; post events, photos, videos; set up their own groups (open AND by invitation only), talk in the Forums - just like Facebook, U-tube, and others - except that it's intended - as is the rest of this site - to help promote the Scots Heritage world-wide, and to encourage and stimulate Scots everywhere to talk to one another and find new friends.

    Scot-talk will also have up-to-date news feeds, with the latest national news, and local news from all around the country.

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! And, to make life even easier for our regular readers, the What's New section tells you exactly that, on a month-by-month basis.

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me!  Our Magazine is filling with many and varied items of interest and, like a paper-based magazine, will be ever-There's a changing, as more items are added. Unlike a paper mag., though, ours will keep the old items, so that each section keeps getting bigger; we simply put the new items at the tops of each section's pages. And some of the magazine sections will have sub-sections, where the subject matter is well spread. We also have a section for readers to contribute their own thoughts, or articles; see yourself in print.

ROBERT THE BRUCE GUARDING THE ENTRANCE TO STIRLING CASTLE  We'll be building and improving our"find it in Scotland" service. This section will have categories of items and services commonly sought after - like Scottish Arts & Crafts, Scottish Gifts - some items less well known, like Bagpipe tuition on Skype - and a means for you to ask us to help find specific commodities.  We will offer a free editorial advert for any valid, Scottish-based Arts or Crafts business (the decision as to validity must, however, rest with us).

 [If you would like your business featured, use the e-mail link -  - and send us info as to what you do, where you are. etc., and your website URL.]

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! Genealogy:  We're also setting up a section where you will be able to 'advertise' to find lost friends and relatives;  either those still in Scotland, or those who've left the Homeland and live abroad (abroad, that is, to us here in Scotia; it's home to them). But please note - we do not offer a genealogy service; we do not have the resources for what is an exacting and very time-consuming service. We will however offer a section giving a broad outline of what's involved, and some links to sites offering this service.

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me!  Around Scotlandis The Section where the various and varied Scottish regions will be invited totell you why a trip to Scotland is not complete without a visit to see their beautiful area (we're still waiting for a response from them)...

    ...and Scots-at-Arms will cover the Fighting Scots in the UK Armed Forces, from the earliest Scottish Regiments, to the present-day Land, Sea and Air Forces. There'll also be the facility for current and past serving members to set up their own groups - to keep up-to-date and renew auld acquaintance - in Scot Talk.

  MILLIONS of Scots across the world belong to Scottish Societies; Burns Clubs, Caledonian Societies, Scottish Country Country Dance Societies, Highland Games Associations, Pipes and Drums Societies - thousands and thousands of groups of like-minded people, promoting their Scots Heritage.  

A lot of these groups are known only to their own members, in their  LOGO OF THE ROYAL CALEDONIAN SOCIETY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA - READ ABOUT THE SOCIETY IN THE LINKS PAGESown local area.  We believe the effort each puts in to further the Spirit of Scotland could be recognised much further afield. Think of Alex and Morag, members of the Auchenshoogle Burns Society, on their way to Canada - or USA, or New Zealand, or Oz, or Bahrain, etc.etc. Wouldn't it be just grand if they knew where to contact a local Burns Society, in LOGO OF THE DUBAI CALEDONIAN SOCIETY - AGAIN, IN THE LINKS PAGES advance, to make new contacts and friends? And for those coming to us from overseas to have local contacts. 

 SO, we've set up a weblinks section to help make this happen.  We will offer site space for any properly-established Scots Societies, Associations, Groups, to advertise their existence. Go to the Web site Links page to let YOUR society tell the world you're out therefind it in scotland will be very happy to help.
