Scots in other countries have been great ambassadors.
Scots Abroad have represented Scotland over the years, decades and centuries. Wherever Scots have been in the world they have shown Scotland has much to offer.
In modern times with Scotland being online and connected to the rest of the world we can all keep in touch as a digital nation.
ST has profiled individual Scots who have made a contribution to the nation in order to inspire Scots back home. We asked them them what it is like to be Scottish abroad and how they view their home country from afar.
