It’s history with the nasty bits left in!

Scotland is a small country with a huge history – mostly of war with England! Follow the bravehearted Highlanders from the desperate Dark Ages to the terrible 20th Century. Learn how to play gruesome games like Twisting the Cow, see what the Scots used to do with burnt pigeon droppings, and discover whether you’re glaikit, douce or peelie-wally! Find out the terrible truth about William Wallace, shudder at sick Scottish torture techniques, and find out how to terrify a tourist with gory Scottish ghost stories!
