I was born in the mid-80s and had a very deep fear of nuclear war and Russia (see my main reply). Don't think it helped that I lived a couple of miles from a RAF base! But I think a lot if it...

I said they were inhabited by Picts before they belonged to Norway. I said it here: "The picts were prior to this". I'm not sure how you've manage to misconstrue this.

And? It just furthers the point that when "Scotland" is mentioned in the historical context of independence, it's a Scotland that doesn't currently exist. Different time, different place, different...

What was Scotland at the time - the Northern Isles weren't part of the Kingdom of Scotland. The Scotland that was subject to the Wars of Independence hasn't existed for centuries.
