    How Do Scotland's Gaelic and Germanic Heritage Reconcile?

    Are there divisions between the Germanic Scots and the Gaelic Scots? Of which nature?

    On a more serious note, I think that scots are scots in the eyes of scots. Scotland has been a blend for a long time and I don't think gaelic/germanic feuds happen anymore.

    Historically, there was, auld lang syne. The highlands were inhabited primarily by Gaelic speakers of Celtic origin, and the lowlands were inhabited by speakers of English or Scots (some consider Scots to be a separate Germanic language rather than a dialect of English). There was quite a bit of conflict both between highlanders and lowlanders but also between the highland clans.
