For Scotland also read Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, Ulster.
It is the British, by whom I mean the Welsh, Scots and Cornish and Mannians, who are the denizens of culture in these islands. The English gave up theirs years ago and retain only the Morris Dancers, the Mummers and the Clog dancers of Lancashire, but little else.
British culture and traditions are the preserve of the Celtic periphery. Even the Northumbrian pipers are essentially Scottish (or British), and the English employ Scottish pipers to lead them into battle and play the bagpipes at expatriate embassy garden parties.
