The most Scottish thing ever !

A video has captured a daredevil playing the bagpipes on one of Britain's most dramatic and beautiful ziplines. Roddy Garden was filmed playing the instrument 30 metres (100ft) above stunning Highlands beach and cliffs. The 49-year-old managed to keep 'The Taking of Beaumont Hamel' going even as he hit 40mph on the 227-metre (750m) line at Ceannabeinne Beach near Durness. Roddy, from Cove, Argyll and Bute, was in the area to propose to his girlfriend Alison Farquhar. The TV and film driver has experience of playing the pipes on high mountains and walking in the sea but this was his toughest challenge yet.

The most Scottish thing ever? Kind of meh. So I beg to differ. The Scots are too 'unique' to be captured in just one thing ;-)
Just ask Frankie Boyle.

I remember seeing this list on Buzzfeed. Now these may be the most genuine Scottish things ever IMHO.

#4 Love or hate them the Bagpipes are our national instrument and recognised as such throughout the world and according to Wikipedia the English national instrument is a Fekkin Bell ROFL (must be because the country is full of Bell-ends!! )

#6 I don't hate them, dislike immensely would be more accurate lol. Interesting that you had to go to Wikipedia to find out that the national instrument of England is the bell, that's because we don't play the bell anymore we evolved. Neither do we ware skirts with purses on the outside. However go to Scotland.....ROFL :D
