Synopsis

Jim Hewitson's Scotland is a gey strange place. And this broth of off-cuts from the past, contemporary attitudes, outlandish lists, absurd tables, historical and hysterical trivia and off-the-wall observations is certainly one of the most curious Scottish books of the new millennium. In it, facts and figures collide with couthy anecdotes and unlikely yarns, all of which are shot through with that mystical ingredient which Jim has been trying to drag to the surface for thirty years: Scottishness. - What are the ten most obscure clan mottoes? - Which is the wettest place in Scotland? - What are the most frequently used reponses to Scotland's beggers? - And is the Glasgow Underground haunted? By the time you've got to the end of this miscellany, you'll be no nearer finding out who you are but you will be able to answer a thousand questions which no one has ever thought to ask before.
