6. Main characteristics of people in Scotland (Personality & Physical)

The Scottish Character

Stereotypically, Scotish people are:
Loyalty, patriotism, sentimentality, violence, drunkenness, honorable nature, rugged.

Scottish people used to be, Long-headed, thrifty industry, a sound hatred of waste, imprudence, idleness, extravagance, the feet planted firmly upon the earth, a conscientious sense that the worldly virtues are, nevertheless, very necessary virtues,religious or moral.

Among other good qualities, the Scots have been distinguished for humour, not for venomous wit, but for kindly, genial humour, which half loves what it laughs at, and this alone shows clearly enough that those to whom it belongs have not looked too exclusively on the gloomy side of the world. I should rather say that the Scots had been an unusually happy people. Intelligent industry, the honest doing of daily work, with a sense that it must be done well, under penalties ; the necessaries of life moderately provided for ; and a sensible content with the situation of life in which men are born, this through the week, and at the end of it the "Cotter's Saturday Night"

The Scottish Appearance

People in Scotland have white skin, blonde or red hair, they have blue and green eyes
