    The oldest whisky still in the world has been uncovered at a medieval abbey where William Wallace took refuge after defeating the English in battle. Archaeologists found what they believe to be an installation used for the distillation process at Lindores Abbey in Fife. The first ever written record of Scotch whisky distillation took place in the abbey in 1494, according to the exchequer rolls of King James IV.

    Prince William has revealed that his father, Prince Charles, is absolutely obsessed with a certain type of squirrel. “He is completely infatuated by the red squirrels that live around the [Birkhall] estate in Scotland,” Prince William told Country Life in a special edition of the British weekly guest-edited by Prince Charles himself. He added that the Prince of Whales likes them, “to the extent that he’s given them names and is allowing them into the house.”Prince Charles, who celebrated his 70th birthday Wednesday, noted that the rodents are “incredibly special creatures.”

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) said in a court filing Friday that the London-based Maltese professor who told former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that Russia had "dirt" on Hillary Clinton may be dead. Joseph Mifsud vanished from the public eye late last year after his name surfaced in stories about the Russia investigation. The DNC, which is suing Russia, the Trump campaign, and WikiLeaks for interfering in the 2016 election, said that it believes that all the defendants in the case had been served with the complaint, “with the exception of Mifsud (who is missing and may be deceased).”...

    An Instagram famous US hunter has left social media after receiving death threats for posting photos from her trip to Scotland. Larysa Switlyk, a professional “huntess” found herself at the centre of a furore after she posted photographs with her Scottish trophies, including a goat she said was killed with a “200 yard shot” during a “fun hunt” on the Hebridean island of Islay. But on Wednesday night, the 33-year-old TV presenter complained she had received death threats and posted an image of herself in front of a plane to announce her two week departure from social media.

    A new billboard campaign in Scotland is calling out “homophobes” and “transphobes,” focusing in particular on religious “bigots.” In reality, it is the billboard campaign that is fear-based and bigoted. One billboard reads: “Dear bigots, division seems to be what you believe in. We don’t want your religious hate on our buses, on our streets and in our communities. We don’t want you spreading your intolerance. Or making people’s lives a misery because of their religious dress. You may not have faith in respect and love, but we do. That’s why if we see or hear your hate, we’re reporting...

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | May 30, 2018 | Lee Smith
    In the shifting narratives of the Trump-Russia probe, a Maltese academic named Joseph Mifsud has remained a linchpin regarding claims of collusion. He is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that the Russians had emails related to the Clinton campaign. The FBI says it opened its investigation in late July 2016 after Papadopoulos relayed that information to Australian diplomat Alexander Downer, and the Australians tipped off U.S. authorities. While some news accounts describe Mifsud as an accomplice to Russian clandestine operations or a “cut-out” (intermediary), others contend he is a full-fledged Russian spy. In an official...

    Not terribly long ago, The Scotsman newspaper printed a helpful list of 15 words that have alternate meanings in Scotland. It pointed out that pudding has nothing to do with a Jell-O mix but is often a sausage made from pigs’ blood, that messages means grocery shopping, and that if you mince something, you’ve pretty much effed it up. Unfortunately, the paper failed to include chug on the list, which is why Mountain Dew UK is being dragged across Scottish Twitter for inadvertently telling everyone that they’re chronic masturbators.

    he first clear evidence of Bronze Age human activity on Staffa, the dramatic rocky island in Scotland's Inner Hebrides, has been discovered by archaeologists. A single shard of decorated prehistoric pottery was discovered in a small pit on the island in 2016, prompting a more detailed excavation which concluded last week. The team of archaeologists found a burnt grain of hulled barley at the same site, which according to radiocarbon dating originated somewhere between 1880 and 1700 BC. The scientists said the grain -- alongside more fragments of the same type of pottery -- demonstrated that people were "visiting and...

    <p>Documents show that U.S. President Donald Trump’s family business has “destroyed the vast majority” of an environmentally sensitive area of sand dunes near its golf course north of Aberdeen in Scotland.</p> <p>Scottish Natural Heritage, which is responsible for the management and monitoring of sites of special scientific interest, has found that construction of the golf course has “led to direct loss of” as much as 68 hectares (168 acres) of mobile sand dunes protected under Scottish law. The destruction occurred despite a personal commitment by Trump to minimize the damage when Scottish authorities granted permission for the project.</p>

    (snip) --- Francesco Molinari has held off a cast of golfing giants including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and defending champion Jordan Spieth to become the first Italian winner of the British Open in 158 years. Playing alongside the resurgent Woods in the final round, Molinari carded a nerveless two-under-par 69 to win the Claret Jug by two shots from McIlroy (70), English hope Justin Rose (69) and Americans Xander Schauffele (74) and Kevin Kisner (74). With a brilliant birdie at the last, 35-year-old Molinari's eight-under 72-hole total of 276 eclipsed Padraig Harrington's Carnoustie tournament record score from 2007 by a...

    President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K. was marked by thousands of people demonstrating in the streets, first in London as Trump met with Queen Elizabeth and then in Scotland where he went to play a little golf. Handmade signs at the massive protest in central London last Friday took aim at Trump's immigration policies and his past comments about women, among plenty of other topics. Not everyone in the crowds came out to hate on Trump. Some were seen sporting his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again" on hats, according to the Associated Press. But the majority...

Ms Sturgeon had been named honorary grand marshal for Pride and led 8,000 people through the city centre to a festival at Kelvingrove Park in the West End. After the march she said she had accepted the invitation from Pride before Mr Trump’s visit to Scotland this weekend was...

    Police in Scotland have arrested the paragliding protester who was able to get surprisingly close to President Donald Trump on Friday night as the President visited his Turnberry golf resort. In a statement, Police Scotland said a 55-year-old man has been charged and will appear in Ayr Sheriff Court on Monday. After the President arrived at his Turnberry resort, the paraglider, a Greenpeace activist, flew by the President with a banner that read, "TRUMP, WELL BELOW PAR #RESIST," and then managed to escape. Greenpeace tweeted an image of the incident with the caption, "We've just delivered a message to @RealDonaldTrump...
