Generally they dont know much about Scotland and can't distinguisch it from England.

Except those who have watched The Brave Heart perhaps.

Braveheart: filmed in Ireland
Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

I didn't even think of kilts...cause I think talking about kilt has nothing to do with your topic----that kilt is what you know about scotland not what you think about...

well I'd say.....I don't think good about it cause funky_dunc you're scot as I know, and I don't like your post much so I don't like scotland much....
umm....j/k

maybe......

Actually I don't have feelings thoughts or comments to certain countries or areas in general, except very few countries which I feel an affinity to.

So for my part, scotland, england, wales wherever they don't mean a lot to me....and they seem the same when I don't think much about them....well might be that I'm not very interested in Britain as a whole...a few bands there I like but they belonged to last century, when talking about Britain I tend to think of no-big-personality, nothing very special and nothing very intriguing to me....that's all. :)

Not modernised!   We were the first industrial country and acheived 'developed' status in the 1920s!

Scots invented television, the telephone, antibiotics, anesthetics, pneumatic tyers, golf and modern economics.  

I think that opinion needs to be corrected
