Notebooks inspired by the importance of the ballads and songs of Scotland in the country’s life, heritage and culture.

“Flower of Scotland” (Scots: Flooer o’ Scotland, Gaelic: Flùr na h-Alba) is a Scottish song which has become the unofficial national anthem of Scotland, performed at special occasions and sporting events.

The song was composed in the mid-1960s by Roy Williamson, who, with Ronnie Browne, made up the hugely popular Scottish folk duo The Corries.

The lyrics refer to the victory of the Scots, over Edward II, led by Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn, 1314.
The song was first heard publicly in a 1967 BBC television series and has grown in popularity over the years, preferred by many as a national anthem, over “Scots Wha Hae”, “Caledonia” and “Scotland the Brave”.
In a poll, conducted by The Royal Scottish National Orchestra in 2006, to determine which tune the country should use as its national anthem, “Flower of Scotland” came top and took 41 per cent of the vote.

Our notebook is bound in genuine Flower of Scotland Tartan, woven in Great Britain.

The cloth is supplied by House of Edgar.

Commonplace notebooks date back to the Scottish Enlightenment. Many thinkers and writers used a Commonplace notebook for writing down ideas and knowledge. Adam Smith, Robert Burns, David Hume, and later, writers such as Sir Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Virginia Woolf used commonplace notebooks.

About the notebook: This notebook is made with cloth woven in mills in the United Kingdom. Notebook pages and paper components are made with acid-free paper from sustainable forests. Boards used in the binding process are made of 100% recycled paper. This hardback notebook is bound in genuine British tartan cloth with an elastic closure, ribbon market, eight perforated end leaves and expandable inner note holder. Each contains a removable booklet detailing the story and words of each Scottish song or poem in our range. Each includes a retractable pen. (Pen barrel colour may vary from that illustrated.)
