365 Reasons To Be Proud To Be Scottish is a year-long scenic route of jollyness taking in the quirky events, inventions, traditions, people, places, and characters that make Scotland a country worth celebrating every day of the year. Has there ever been a more eccentric, creative, inventive, and passionate race than the Scottish? We don't think so and 365 Reasons To Be Proud To Be Scottish proves it brilliantly. In the book you'll find a historical year's worth of the discoveries, delights, and derring-do that make Scotland a place to love and cherish, a place of wonder, and a country that attracts 13 million people through its doors each year. From the hallowed halls of St Andrew’s University – the first in Scotland (and, in 2013, celebrating its 600th birthday!) – to the glorious slopes of Edinburgh’s streets; from the magical monster myths of loch landscapes to the ancient highland whisky makers; from inventors Alexander Graham Bell to brave knights such as William Wallace – Scotland is amazing, every single day of the year.
