Scottish special units

I am having some difficulty finding information on Scottish special units, and was wondering if any of you may have some interesting information?

Wouldn't Scottish units fall under the UK Army? I don't recall them having their own seperate army.
Try looking for Highland Special Units perhaps...or simply Special Units based in Scotland.

There is no Scottish army per/se. In fact, there is, as of August, no more Scottish Regiments - they are ALL amalgamated into one colosally large regiment called The Royal Regiment of Scotland. Bloody ENGLISH government!!! That is what the thread is started way back titled Save the Scottish Regiments http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=11878 was all about.

The website for this new regiment: http://www.it-serve.co.uk/rros/index.php

That means no more:
Royal Scots
Black Watch (RHR)
Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (PL)
Royal Highland Fusilliers (PMOGAR)
Kings Own Scottish Borderers
The Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordon, and Cameronians)
Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

Now each regiment will in turn become a battalion of this new "super regiment".

The capbadge:
The motto translated means: "Noone invokes me with impunity" And is the same motto that the Order of the Thistle has used since the 1700's.

Try having Scot, English and Welsh! Lucky for me the Scot dominates the others. Unlucky for me that Scot blood is expensive to feed alcohol to. Lol

Nothing like taking pride of one's unit out of the army and making generic status quo...

Yes, our pipes still scare the shit out of opposing armies - the manky English included!!

Quote:
The Esk was swollen sae red an' sae deep,
But shouther to shouther the brave lads keep;
Twa thousand swam owre to fell English ground
An' danced themselves dry to the pibroch's sound.
Dumfoun'er'd the English saw, they saw,
Dumfoun'er'd they heard the blaw, the blaw,
Dumfoun'er'd they a' ran awa', awa',
Frae the hundred pipers an' a', an' a'.

On REFORGER 1976, I was TDY for a week from the U.S. 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment to a Black Watch infantry battalion as an exchange medic.
