A Haverin’ History of Scotland takes an irreverent look at Scottish history. The book is a chronological narrative of Scotland’s long and impressive history, from the highs of Bannockburn to the lows of Flodden, Culloden and the decision to cancel Taggart. It asks the serious, hard-hitting questions: is the Perthshire town where the Stone of Destiny resided pronounced Scone or Scone? How many trees did Bloody Mary have time to plant anyway? Why was footballer Alan Hansen not put in Edinburgh Castle’s dungeon for bumping into Willie Miller in the 1982 World Cup? And which dentist invented Irn Bru?
