Ancient buildings are seen with historical imprints everywhere. From the majestic castle and the imprint on walls, you feel centuries-old storms that have passed by here.., and where visitors inadvertently began to imagine which era they are experiencing. Arriving in Edinburgh is like entering the medieval era. And when the clouds covers Edinburgh, just standing under the cloud, or even more aspiringly - standing on the grounds of Scott Monument built over a hundred years ago with its commanding views where you will feel everything suddenly openning up... and everything is so very perfect!




...go where they will, they find no city of the same distinction;
go where they will, they take a pride in their old home.



— By Robert Louis Stevenson

TUNE OF THE HIGHLAND

There is a familiar tune all over the world that makes the world pays tribute to Scotland no matter where it's played. The euphemistic and powerful tune makes people forget all the sins and ugliness in the world... making people feel trauma of war in the highland with the melody that symbolizes peace and freedom - the Scottish bagpipe! Scottish bagpipes, like the ancient Chinese drums that can effectively motivate morale during wartimes.

KILT UNIFORM

In the 17th and 18th centuries, the clans of the Scottish Highlands fought endlessly throughout the years, and the men who was on the battlefield identified their enemy from the grating pattern they wore. In the First World War, the Royal Highlands Corps dressed in kilt uniforms, it’s was called the lady of hell by the Germans who fought the unimaginable brave and hard-core rivals.

The Scottish grating lasts forever in fashion industry. Light brown background with white, black and red lines, three thick and thin cross pattern combined into a typical Scottish plaid, this is Burberry's classic design. Thomas Burberry uses the Scottish plaid design style for trench coat, which is simple and casual, but always exudes a mature and rational charm. 100 years past since Burberry set up, when people mentioned Burberry today, the first reaction is trench coat, followed by the Scottish.
