I feel like I’m lacking any kind of writing inspiration these days, baby brain has arrived early second time around! So I thought I would do a little tag and hopefully get my blogging mojo back. What better tag to do than ‘The Scottish Tag’, I saw this over on a couple of You Tube Channels – Mrs Meldrum and Mama Reid so being Scottish, I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon!
The Scottish Tag
Question 1: Whereabouts in Scotland are you from?
I’m from a wee village about 20mins outside Glasgow.
Question 2: Where’s your favourite place you’ve been in Scotland?
I love Edinburgh. We don’t go often as David used to work there & it lost it’s charm for him but it’s definitely one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in Scotland. The buildings are absolutely gorgeous; I could spend hours just walking around looking at them. There’s so much history there as well and the people watching is fab!
Question 3: Where would you like to visit in Scotland?
I’d love to do some of the Islands. The Fairy Pools in Skye are on my bucket list – they look unbelievable!
Question 4: What is your favourite Scottish film?
I don’t really have one. I’ve seen Trainspotting but I didn’t find it up to much. I would probably have to say Braveheart – I mean the acting is pretty awful but there’s just something about it.
Question 5: Do you match up to any Scottish stereotypes?
Well apart from the obvious one – I’m ginger! I don’t wear a kilt or play bagpipes and I’m rarely drunk. Also, I hate haggis. Irn Bru is great though as are deep fried Mars Bars.
Question 6: What is your favourite Scottish food?
Tablet? Is that Scottish? It’s more of a sweet than a proper food I suppose. Like I said before, I hate haggis. I’m not sure what else is classed as a ‘Scottish food’ tottie scones, square sausage? STEAK PIE!! That’s definitely Scottish, everybody loves steak pie & if you don’t you just haven’t eaten a good one!
Question 7: Do you follow any Scottish traditions?
At school we always used to have a singing and poetry competition for Burns Night and a ceilidh for St Andrews Day. Since I’m clearly not of school age anymore the only thing we really do is Hogmanay (New Years Eve) which apparently is only really a thing here in Scotland.
Question 8: What is your favourite Scottish word?
I probably say loads but they’re just words to me so it’s difficult to pick just one. I say aye (yes) and crabbit (grumpy) a lot.
Question 9: What is your favourite Scottish song?
I love Loch Lomond. I’ve always wondered how people from other countries know that a party is over if Loch Lomond isn’t played! I also love Dignity by Deacon Blue and obviously Flower of Scotland. Auld Lang Syne is a Hogmanay favourite too.
Question 10: Can you recommend any Scottish you tubers?
Like I said I found this tag through watching Mrs Meldrum
and Mama Reid
– I love both their channels so definitely go give them a watch!
I tag Kirsty from Honest K
– I think you’ll love this one!
