Scottish Identity

“I do not believe that you can exaggerate the importance of the preservation of old ways and customs, and all those little things which bind a man to his native place.  Today we live in difficult times.  The steam-roller of progress is flattening out many of our old institutions, and there is a danger of a general decline in idiom and distinctive quality in our Scottish life.  The only way to counteract this peril is to preserve jealously all these elder things which are bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh.  For, remember, no man can face the future with courage and confidence unless it is solidly founded upon the past.  And conversely, no problem will be too hard, no situation too strange, if we can link it with what we know and love”  F Marian McNeill   (author of "The Silver Bough" servies)
