  Scottish Heritage

Hark when the night is falling, Hear! hear the pipes are calling!
Loudly and proudly calling, Down thro' the glen.
There where the hills are sleeping, Now feel the blood a-leaping,
High as the spirits of the old Highland men.

High in the misty Highlands, Out by the purple islands,
Brave are the hearts that beat Beneath Scottish skies.
Wild are the winds to meet you, Staunch are the friends that greet you,
Kind as the love that shines from fair maiden's eyes.

Towering in gallant fame, Scotland my mountain hame,
High may your proud standards gloriously wave,
Land of my high endeavour, Land of the shining heather,
Land of my heart for ever, Scotland the brave!

A quick [tongue-in-cheek] note on "Scotchmen"... You may have heard it said that it is not proper to call a Scot or Scottsman "Scotch." But we Scots are FAR too polite to correct folks who just don't know any better. So next time someone calls you "Scotch," just say, "Scotch is wiskey - but thank you anyway for the compliment."
