Thanks for the welcome.
Scotland is part of the United Kingdom, which is also called great Britain or Britain and is directly north of England. It's Capital is called Edinburgh with a latitude and longitude of : 55° 57' N / 3° 11' W. That's "where the fuck" Scotland is I'm sure that clears it up for you. Or you could try google maps.
Yeah sadly when the Highland Clearances began, alot of Scots had no option but to leave for America. It must have been a tough time to go through. The evictions were brutal.
Sorry, being in Scotland I am forgetting how the term patriot can be taken so many different ways. I am not a tea party patriot. Just proud of the american people (the scots too!)
