    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.

    The Clearances, both Lowland and Highland, consolidated Scotland as a Germanic country. Most of the Celtic riffraff scattered away in a million different directions, so there's no real majority Scottish population anywhere. The same process happened in Ireland, but the relative distance from England has maintained an illusion of Celticity. It's not for nothing that English are 'more Irish than the Irish themselves'. Ulstermen in America were considered Irish without distinction until the Potato Famine. The thing is, the Scots were only secondary to Angles in Ireland and in actuality, the present Republic is dominated by those of Anglo-Irish heritage of much older provenance than Cameronians and Orangemen. This is reflected in the English roots of Gerald Adams and Scottish roots of Ian Paisley.
