About Uncovering Scotland

Uncovering Scotland aims at offering an alternative view of the land of the Scots. Taking a step away from the traditional stereotypes of the haggis-eating kilt-wearing bagpiper, this multimedia site highlights some of the lesser known aspects of Scottish culture and traditions.

William Shakespeare’s Macbeth helped to establish Scotland’s reputation as a breeding ground for witchcraft and the supernatural but what are the lesser-known ghost stories of the land? Take the opportunity to learn about some of the mythical creatures in Scottish folklore which don’t always make the fairytales. Discover some hidden gems in Scotland’s music scene and experience the smaller and unusual festivals which are often overlooked. Get a flavour of what it means to be a Gaelic speaker in Scotland today – not necessarily confined to the Highlands.

Welcome to an alternative view of the land of the Scots…
