What’s in a name?

The name of this blog has been known to upset and offend – particularly those who have never heard of Trainspotting or Irvine Welsh.

Undoubtedly, it’s shite being Scottish is a provocative name for a blog, but it has to be understood in context. It has only ever been my intention to amuse, entertain and encourage, never deliberately to upset or offend.

So if you feel your hackles rising, please do not jump to conclusions or rush to judgement.

Read about the blog here, about why it is called it’s shite being Scottish here and about why the subtitle is Mindfulness, Munro-bagging and cancer here.

Otherwise, jump in anywhere and enjoy!
