We're all mostly Scots descendants here in the Appalachian Mountains and we've kept many of our Scottish traditions alive. We, like the Scots, are generally misunderstood and ridiculed by the yanks. Our speech dialect is directly derived from Scotland with Cherokee influence and is made light of by the mostly eastern euro descended yanks. But whenever there's a war or conflict, our country calls on the southern folk first. I have always wanted to see the highlands and meet the people. Your country is beautiful. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Your country was "MADE" by SCOTS and IRISH! Some would call them "ULSTER SCOTS"! But I trully know the mixture to be "others",,, basically anyone looking for ancestry from this era should be looking from Ireland to Scotland and some England as thats where a lot of the plantation came from in Ulster! Border lands I mean of England and Scotland.This area was no mans land and very fierce Clans!! Cromwell sent many to Ulster to make life easier!! BAD DESPOT!! lol! But thats why we have the troubles in ULSTER!! x You can usually tell by your surname!!! xx

I may add there was other reasons you have SCOTS in IRELAND throughout History but I wud need pages to explain! Or why you had IRISH in SCOTLAND! Timing of History,English Church and Rulers laying so called new rules to SCOTS who followed church by GOD alone but then told they MUST obey English and King! Or something along these lines duh!!??
