The Sporting Scot

March 27, 2008
Scotland and sport – and yes, there is more than golf and football!  This anthology of Scottish writing on sport covers such at first sight unlikely sports as baseball and cricket – but then one of the classic accounts of an English village cricket match comes in the very Scottish A G Macdonell’s England, their England.The authors whose work is included in this anthology include Burns, Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, John Buchan, Neil Munro, Robin Jenkins and William McIlvanney and the sports include curling, angling, shinty and bowls as well as the various codes of football and, naturally, golf – that Royal and Ancient game so associated with Scotland.
