Congratulations, kilt-wearers, and descendants of William Wallace! Your country’s seas are about to become the proud guardians of the world’s largest floating wind farm.
A team of researchers has happened upon several hundred footprints left by Middle Jurassic dinosaurs at a coastal lagoon in Scotland.
The controlled demolition of old buildings is always a fun thing to watch, especially when demolition experts do extremely accurate math in order to bring down huge structures. Just like in the case of the coal-fired Cockenzie power station in East Lothian, Scotland.
Today is Mel Gibson's 59th birthday! Happy Birthday Mel. 2014 was also the year that Scotland decided it didn't want FREEDOM after all. As such, Braveheart, directed by and starring Gibson, is quite clearly the ideal film to be watching tonight.
There have probably been mountain bike rides that have been more intense than Danny Macaskill's tour through the Isle of Skye in Scotland and perhaps there have been a few rides slightly more beautiful of his ride on the Cuillin Ridgeline but I can't imagine any feeling more epic than this. It is stunning.
The UK may have a spaceport within four years—and it will likely be in the northern reaches of Scotland.
Among connoisseurs, scotch whisky is heralded as a complex delicacy. Listen in on a tasting: You'll swear they're describing an entire dinner entree, not a sip of booze. But scotch distillers need only three ingredients—and a barrel-full of technique—to make that magical elixir, as I learned while touring the…
Now here's a room with many views. At Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Scotland, you might come across this mirrored lookout blending into the landscape. The walls of mirrors are both framing device and invisibility cloak, reflecting an utterly unique view of the surrounding loch and trees.
When the Commonwealth Games come to Glasgow this July, the city wants to put its best foot forward. The city thus has plans to blow up the Red Road flats, an infamous and now largely abandoned housing project, as part of its opening ceremony. A growing backlash, however, asks whether dynamiting the Red Road flats…
Nuclear bunkers have fallen out of fashion in recent years, but that doesn't mean you can't transform one into a delightful bed and breakfast. This bunker in Scotland is currently up for sale and even includes a fascinating history: It's situated on a former POW camp.
If driving up to a campsite and setting up a tent is too much "roughing it" to endure, this tent/truck chimera is just what you need to enjoy the great outdoors without sacrificing the amenities of a cabin.
Part Tricorder and part lock-pick, Dr. Who's famous all-in-one device could handle any crisis—save deadlock seals. Now, researchers from Dundee University have replicated at least some of the screwdriver's functionality with a machine capable of lifting and turning suspended objects.
There's no smoking in front of Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Scotland—the sign says so—though nobody really paid attention to it. That's why the hospital installed a loudspeaker-backed smoke alarm commanding cigarette scofflaws—in no uncertain terms—to cut that shit out.
Siri has been tested in the interpretation of accents across the country, but she meets her match with the utterly amazing dialect of the proud Scottish people. To be fair, how many actual humans would know how to respond to a request for a "jammy dodger like a f*ckin jam sandwich"? [YouTube/thegavin2000]
The charming rural scene pictured above actually contains 50 tons of discarded water bottles and sandwich containers, which were blended up and refashioned into this 90-foot-long plastic bridge.
The Clyde and Forth Canal and the Union Canal in central Scotland were major commercial arteries from the time of their construction in the late 1780's up until the 1930's, when economic competition from motor vehicles overtook ferry transportation.
Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of a 1,000-year-old Viking in Scotland, along with his boat, ax, sword and lots of other nifty Viking stuff.
