“Scotland for me is a harsh, cold and bitter place. It was even worse when my great, great grandfather used to live there…The reason I’m patriotic about Scotland is because I think it’s been dealt a really hard hand. It’s marketed the world over as … haggis…bagpipes. But no one ever puts anything back into it.”
