Scotland has long been famous for excellence in design and technology, engineering and innovation. The Scottish Enlightenment and the industrial revolution heralded an explosion of scientific and academic accomplishment which continues to this day. Presented here is a small selection of photographs, taking a light-hearted, slightly off-beat look at some of Scotland’s contributions to art, architecture, sports, food and more.
Along with design innovation, Scotland has played a significant role in the history of photography. The photographic archive of the University of St Andrews holds tens of thousands of images from which this mini exhibition has been drawn.
