Welcome to 100 Great Scots – an amazing guide that reveals the lives of some of the greatest Scots ever to have lived. Discover the inspirational true stories of the men and women who shaped Scotland and shook the world!

Brought to you by the award-winning team behind The Scots Magazine – founded in 1739 and the oldest magazine still in production on the planet – 100 Great Scots is packed full of astounding tales and fascinating facts.
For a small country on the fringes of Europe, Scotland’s always punched above its weight in terms of global impact – whether it’s the inventors who kick-started the modern world, or the writers and artists who shaped the way we think.

The Scots we’ve selected are just a tiny slice of the many thousands who could have featured. The 100 here are not a definitive list, nor are they ranked in terms of greatness – rather they are an eclectic mix of the great and the good, famous names and remarkable people you won’t believe you’ve never heard of. All of them have achieved greatness – and changed our lives.

Modern cultural icons like Billy Connolly and Sean Connery, and sporting greats like Andy Murray, Jackie Stewart and Shirley Robertson, take their place among heroes of Scottish history, including Robert the Bruce, William Wallace, Rob Roy and Flora MacDonald.

You’ll find exhilarating tales of piracy and adventure, mystery and political intrigue, alongside inspiring stories of scientists pushing medical frontiers, campaigners fighting for the disadvantaged, titans of literature and the arts, and the ingenious inventors who made history.  

100 Great Scots is the ultimate read for everyone with a passion for Scotland.
