Let's get those party hats on, the Forth Bridge has just been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO! It's been a long time coming, and we are overjoyed :)
Read more about this fascinating monument to British engineering: http://ow.ly/Pdy40

We've even been crazy enough to create a greeting card, should you want to send your congratulations to the bridge: http://ow.ly/d/3tpN
Opened in 1890, the Forth Bridge is a Scottish icon recognised the world over as the most famous rail bridge of cantilever designs.

Did you know that Bruadar is the only whisky liqueur to use the sloe berry in its production? Sloe berries grow wild on blackthorn bushes and are more commonly used in the production of homemade infusions like sloe gin. The sloes are quite dry and bitter on their own but Morrison and MacKay whisky merchants discovered that the combination of the sloes with the sweetness of honey was simply perfect.

Dumbarton= fort britan named after king Britan (where we get the name Britain from) the Phoenicians that landed there NOT!!! Vikings. It's VI kings their is no such thing as Vikings they have made them up to hide where the royals (purple) originated from. Teach Scotland's real history and stop pushing this fake story
