Led by Scottish master fiddler Alasdair Fraser and backed by piano, drums, harps and guitars, the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers are said to be as lively as a dance band and as majestic as a symphony orchestra. For 30 years, the members have honored the fiddling tradition of playing by ear, allowing them to follow the spontaneous evolution of the melody wherever it leads.
The sound of dozens of fiddlers will fill the Bankhead Theater when the San Francisco Scottish Fiddlers perform Sunday afternoon, April 24, 2016.

Atlas, is a seven-month-old continental giant rabbit, is about the size of a West Highland White Terrier. Atlas, still has some growing to do!
Animal welfare officials in Scotland are seeking a new home for a giant rabbit.

Senseless! Why are Syrian refugees being foisted on a remote Scottish island with high unemployment and poverty - then given perks some locals don't enjoy? 
Some 15 families fleeing the Syrian civil war have been rehomed on the tiny island of Bute, off the West of Scotland, where they have been given free accommodation and can pray five times a day.

They aren't being 'foisted' on Bute. The Daily Fail is stirring up bigoted nonsense - the 15 families (15 families - not a small nation state!) have been welcomed with open arms to the island. See http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2015/12/21/a-response-to-the-daily-mail-bile/ - and it's not remote - I can see it from my house in the Clyde estuary, 10 mins away by ferry!

Dozens of people scattered through the Peñasco and surrounding villages demonstrated traditional skills such as weaving, making tortillas and carving wood on Saturday as part of a multicultural celebration to highlight the history in these mountain valleys and old skills that aren’t dead yet.

It may look like it doesn't belong, but one man's managed to make a career out of spreading his heritage in the most unlikely of places.

Locals say it's the first theft on the island in decades. Items ranging from wool hats to candy and cosmetics were taken from a shop next to Canna's pier.
