I am a proud Scotsman and although I have spent most of life living in England I always get up to Soctland as often as possible. I know this sounds like a cliche but we seem to be more proud of Scotland as other nations. This may be because we are a small country and feel we need to show our love for our lands.
I am always proud when I have travelled to support various Scotland sporting teams ie football and rugby. The Scots never cause any trouble (with a couple of execptions, notably Wembley and Manchester), get on with their hosts and leave a good impression behind.
One of my personal experiences was in Bordeaux for the football World Cup in 1998. I travelled to watch Scotland v Norway. In the hotel where we stayed there was a mix of Scots and Norwegians and the night before we spent the evening in the bar together having a few drinks, playing pool and table football, getting to know our new friends. The next day whilst travelling to the ground I remember seeing a huge Scotland banner being walked along the main street with thousands of Scots behind it picking people up along the way. There was a party atmosphere in the ground, fans were not segregated and there was a lot of good natured banter during the game, which finished 1-1. I can say it is probably the best game I have been to due to the atmosphere and the time I spent with new friends.
I agree with everything Ron says, Scotland is a beautiful, historical country and I could type for hours why this is the case, but I shan't bore you any further! If anyone is considering a trip to Scotland then go for it, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
