Welcome to the Heart o' Scotland

St. Andrews HotelHeart o' Scotland began with an interest in our Scottish ancestry and our love of books. It's grown to include just about anything connected with Scotland and its culture.

What we've tried to do is provide you with some entertaining information and articles on topics ranging from the lives of Wallace and Bruce to crafting Celtic knotwork or raising a West Highland White Terrier.

Check out our Scottish holiday pages - Halloween in Scotland, Christmas in Scotland, and Hogmanay - the Scottish New Year.

A Terrier threesomeSince the Scots are both a deeply spiritual and also superstitious people, we offer several pages on Scottish religion, culture and folklore: Celtic Mythology, Celtic Christianity, Scottish Myths and Legends (folklore), and Scottish Customs (cultural traditions).

Famous Scots includes biographies of such Scottish notables as Sean Connery, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Eric Liddell.

Our History of Scotland section offers several articles on Scotland's history from the Stone Age through present times.

Loch Ness Each page provides a brief introduction to the topic or a short biography or essay (sometimes not so short), with suggested reading material or videos. All we've done is scout out what's available and of good quality, to save you time and help you avoid frustrating searches.

We've also got a great selection of books for Scotland lovers of every variety - Scotland golfing, malt whisky connoisseurs, family history buffs, and much more.

Check out our Crafts and Cooking pages for ideas on celebrating your Scottish heritage in your own home.
