Scottish Travellers

Scottish Travellers, or the people termed loosely Gypsies and Tinkers in Scotland, consist of a number of diverse, unrelated communities, with groups speaking a variety of different languages and holding to distinct customs, histories, and traditions. There are three distinct communities that identify themselves as Gypsies or Travellers in Scotland: Indigenous Highland Travellers; Funfair Travellers, or Showmen; Romanichals (a subgroup of the Romani people) and Lowland Gypsies.

Famous quotes containing the words travellers and/or scottish:

    We travellers are in very hard circumstances. If we say nothing but what has been said before us, we are dull and have observed nothing. If we tell anything new, we are laughed at as fabulous and romantic.
    Mary Wortley, Lady Montagu (1689–1762)

    Better wear out shoes than sheets.
    —18th-century Scottish proverb, collected in J. Kelly, Complete Collection of Scottish Proverbs (1721)
