Scotland rocks. We’ve got some of the most beautiful landscapes, best people, strangest traditions, most incredible bands and enough amazing stories to last us for years – and it would seem that social media agrees.
For the last 24 hours, the hashtag #GrowingUpScottish has been trending on Twitter, as Scots far and wide recall the very best bits of growing up in the best wee country in the world.
