Ahhh... Scotland. Good ol' Smokey. I don't have tartan roots myself but like any other culture, the Scots have their own quirks and thrills that set them apart from the other nations in the Anglosphere. There's definitely a lot more to Scotland than their fantastic accent, bagpipes, kilts, and the whole lot, though. But aside from these awesome Scottish pride tattoos, the thing I love the most about Scotland is the fact that their national animal is a unicorn. Go ahead, look it up.

And with a motto like ‘Nemo me impune lacessit’ which is translated to ‘No one provokes me with impunity,’ you better not mess with these fun-loving Scots!
