Cò às a tha sibh uile?

Thought it might be interesting to ask where everyone is from?

How many people here are Scottish? I live in central Scotland, but am from the north originally.

I'm from England, born in the Fens, then lived in London and now on the South Coast. I have English, Scottish, French and Dutch ancestry going back a couple of hundred years.

I’m from Poland (and living there), no direct associations with Scotland or Ireland, but I once came to liking Irish music and from that I started to learn Irish to understand song lyrics mostly, got into that language, now trying to learn about other Gaelic languages (Scottish and Manx), though still the Munster dialect is my favourite. ;-)

I too do not have any connect with Scotland as such. But I love learning languages.

Prince Edward Island, in Canada. All of my Scottish ancestry came here between 1800 and 1860 and my DNA still shows about 90% Scots / Irish. Gaelic was once the second most common language in PEI and could still be heard well into the 20th century My Great Grandfather died in 1954 (I was 7) and Gaelic was his mother tongue.

We live in North Carolina. We visit Scotland frequently, or did before the plague. Looking forward to when we can visit Scotland again.
