S c o t l a n d  : People & Culture

Scottish Culture

» Scotland has a civic culture somewhat distinct from that of the rest of the British Isles . It originates from various differences, some entrenched as part of the Act of Union, others facets of nationhood not readily defined but readily identifiable.

Scotland is a mixture of many cultural backgrounds, but it is the Celtic influence on its people that is perhaps the best well known. Celtic mythology and traditions can still be found today; particularly in the Highlands and the Southern Uplands of Galloway.

» Scotland retains its own distinct sense of nationhood. Academic research consistently shows that people in Scotland feel Scottish, whilst not necessarily feeling the need to see that translated into the establishment of a fully-independent Scottish nation-state. Scottish culture is a thriving beast, with a depth of hearty tradition and a solid footing on the world stage of literature and performing arts.

» It's probably true to say that religion has played a more influential part in the history of Scotland than it has in any other part of Britain . Christianity reached Scotland in the 4th century, and with the Reformation the Scottish Church rejected the Pope's authority. Three of Scotland's most important national galleries are all situated within walking distance of the city centre. Add to this the presence of a host of local gallery shops, The Edinburgh Art School, and various studio access facilities. Taken together this gives the city a great blend of the known and upcoming Art.
