This is Scotland: a podcast about Scottish history and the places we made it.
It is Hogmanay 1918. You've lived many lives. A drunk in Stornoway, a sheep farmer in South America, a deckhand in the Royal Naval Reserve. You've even done a bit of minesweeping in your time. But now it's time to go home to your family. To be their first foot on New Year's Day.

Interesting little snippets of Scottish history. The stories are really brought to life and are really easy to follow unlike some dry retellings, and the production quality is super. Love it guys!

Plugging the gaps of knowledge I have about Scottish history nicely
Listen now, you won’t regret it
Great writing, superb pacing, tightly scripted, beautifully scored, insanely immersive.
Be amazed, shocked, enthralled, disgusted, terrified and more, all in the time it takes to make a club sandwich.
