"From the warmth of the gentle tartan home page to its massive list of over 400 Scottish Clans and Septs this site from Nova Scotia is full of traditional Highland Hospitality. You have to be a clan society operating in Nova Scotia to be featured (or have Nova Scotia connections) but that provides plenty of scope for people who are more Scottish than the Scots themselves. There is a mixture of bite size pages about New and Old Scotland - including the reliable information that Gaelic was the official language in the original Garden of Eden (the serpent, of course, was speaking English)."

This website for Scots in Nova Scotia is linked extensively with Electric Scotland at ALMAC, Grangemouth, Stirlingshire, Scotland. There are one-to-one reciprocal links between the clan pages within Electric Scotland and the corresponding clan pages on this site. For Scottish History, we link to several items of the comprehensive historical information there. See History of Scotland.
ALMAC has graciously granted us permission to use their miniature flag of Scotland on our site.

Among these are the websites dedicated to an individual clan and several personal homepages of Scots living around the world.
