Scottish Sport

Scottish sport largely revolves around two very different games - Football, where we invented the modern passing game and taught it to the South Americans (who've been beating us ever since!), and Golf, which we gave to the world - but kept the best courses. But we have other games such the wild but skilful highland sport of Shinty, the roaring game of Curling. and our sportsmen and women compete successfully in many international spheres such as Cycling, Swimming, Rugby and Snooker. Golf has a section of its own, as does Football but the rest can be found here.
