History of Scottish people

The region both of South and North Britain were people by emigrants from Gaul: the ancient Gauls, the ancient Britons and the ancient Scots, being the same people, at least tribes from the same stock, and all of them belonging to the great race of the Celts.

In modern times, the usual meaning of Scottish is geographical and political and refers to the inhalants of Scotland or people who have come from there without reference to a specific linguistic or cultural group.
For the vast majority of 10,000 years of human history there was no concept of a single country called ‘Scotland’. The first people is believed came from the ice-free south, and they would have followed the coast. They came from Ireland. These Mesolithic people were then replaced by Neolithic framers, though there is evidence that the two cultures existed side-by-side for some time.

During the expedition of Agricola in 80 AD, Julies Caesar describes the whole island at that time he landed as inhabited by two nations; the inland parts by those whom he terms the native occupants or aborigines; the maritime coast by the Belgic Gauls.

The first tentative claim to the unity of the land came when Constantine was crowned ‘Ri Alban’, King of Scots in 889 AD. The first recorded mention of ‘Scoti’ is in a Roman catalogue of the states in the empire compiled around the year 314 AD.
