Scottish Poetry and Place names

Scottish Poetry and Place names

Scotland has a rich and diverse history and culture. There are a number of movies, some of which are complete fiction (such as “Braveheart”) but others such as MacBeth (a true Scottish name with the mac meaning son of) are rooted in historical fact. While the ancestors of the Scottish people were mainly from Scandina and the Vikings, the nomadic nature of their existence often led to songs and Scottish poetry being the main records of their existence.

In terms of scenery. have a look at the picture below of one of Scotland's scenic mountains to give you an idea of what inspired warrior and poet alike.
