Sure, Scotland had plenty of wood to build these boats, but "covered" with "thick" forest??? Really???
Yeah, hard to believe, isn't it? Especially when you watch the British Open when it's played at St. Andrews. It's hard to imagine a tree.

Every tree in a nationwide thick, verdant forest cover cut down to make whiskey and whiskey barrels?
That's a mighty powerful thirst, laddie!
I can't speak to Scotland, but it has been said that when the colonists first came to Indiana, the tree's were so dense that a squirrel could travel from Ohio to Illinois without ever touching the ground.
I don't know if you've been through Indiana, but that couldn't happen today, a mere two hundred years later.
