I am going to tell you about Scotland’s football teams and national side, the country’s most famous musical festival, food and drink and traditions. So read on and be amazed.
Come one come all to see Scotland’s greatest football teams like Celtic, Rangers, St Mirren, Hamilton I could go on all day. The Clydesdales Bank Premier League, that is where all the big teams are but we have other leagues Irn-Bru leagues 1, 2and 3. Scotland is not the best national side in the world, but they always have great support at every game – in sun or rain or snow the Tartan Army will be there.
Scotland has welcomed many of the world’s most famous singers and bands to its festivals like Eminem, the Black Eyed Peas, Jay-z, Paolo Nutini, Scouting for Girls and many more to T in the Park. More than 1,360,000 people have witnessed T in the Park over the last 17 years. T in the Park tickets cost £100+ it has been held in Kinross since 1994. It is a three day event but only some tickets get you there for the Friday, all the rest are for the weekend.
When it comes to drink in Scotland you will be surprised at how it is in Scotland. You have all heard of Iru-Bru, but Scotland has many drinks. Many by Barrs such as limeade, lemonade and cream soda and more, but you don’t know what living is until you have an ice cold can of Irn-Bru on a hot day.
Food in Scotland is great – haggis, neeps and potatoes or a treat a deep fried mars bar. No matter what you eat your taste buds will be tantalised! I have never tried a deep fried mars bar but I have heard they are great.
There are lots of traditions in Scotland such as ceilidhs and dances such as the Gay Gordon and Strip the Willow. Scotland has its own musical instrument the bagpipes. Kilts and tartan are linked to Scotland too.
So if you knew nothing about Scotland before, you should know lots now and if you want to experience it yourself come here to Scotland.
