Hello! I've just seen your post "50 fascinating facts you should know about Scotland, apparently" - I thought I should be one of those annoying people to point out a small error. Number 5, longest echo, is no longer the case - the record was recently smashed and now stands at 112 seconds! However, the good news is - this is STILL IN SCOTLAND! :D (Near Invergordon) So, all's well. A quick google will find the details, if you are interested. Keep up the good work! Alex.
Hey, thanks for letting me know :) The post was taken from somewhere else so wasn’t created by myself but what I could do is put a wee kind of note in saying that it’s now changed. :) and thank you Alex :) I shall try.
There's a Scottish Blue Ranger in Power Rangers RPM and he's without a doubt my favourite Scottish character from TV. He's played by an actor from New Zealand but his accent is actually pretty decent :)
I apologise for taking so long to answering this when we were talking about Scottish characters. I might have to check this guy out :) see what his accent is like.
the last three photos on your last reblog is actaully wick, not inverness! : p couldnt mistake that place for the world haha x
I was close haha, I could only recognise one of the pictures really so thanks for letting me know where the other ones are taken too. :) Will put it in the tags. Also done a little search on the pictures and found the blog they came from. :) x
“And here’s a little ditty my ol’ granddad taught me!”
Bagpiping runs in the Bagpiper’s blood. His father played the bagpipes, and so did his grandfather, his great-grandfather and their grandfathers before them, all the way back to the day the beloved musical instrument first arrived in Scotland.
He’s played his pipes for weddings, marches, wrestling matches and haggis-eating contests (he’s also played them at chess tournaments and libraries, but for some reason his enthusiastic performances didn’t go over so well then). Other musical styles may come and go, but the Bagpiper knows in his heart that the bagpipes will last forever!
