You would be forgiven for thinking it was the Loch Ness Monster or the Wild Haggis!

My Auld Scotia passport tells me the following: If I wave the passport I am allowed
One reported sighting of Nessie ... ... and
I may hunt haggis except in closed season - Hogmany to Burns Night
(along with a few other delights) so my money is defo on either Nessie or the wild Haggis.

I thiink its the Lion, the English 3 lions were originally leopards, if you look at medieval pictures that show the kings arms of England you can see the leopards spots. Of course all noble houses had their own coats of arms and heraldic animal so you will see many kings going into battle under a multitude of banners and that of their "banner men", those who brought their own men to fight under their own banner adding it to the array of banners seen on medieval depictions of war.

I felt I had to post something when I read that the unicorn has been the Scottish national animal for centuries.

Yes, some of the answers are quite comical.....

I, as the sites honerary Scotsman, I can indeed confirm the national animal of Scotland is the Scotty dog.... or the highland cow..... Certainly not a unicorn. Or as the unicorn is called in Glasgow, a dickhead horse!!!
