When we think of Scotland, we think of tartan, kilts, and the Loch Ness monster! But how many famous people came from Scotland?

Can your class name two famous people from Scotland? There is one Scottish inventor that they would really love to thank!

Many more talented people worked on improving the television and today we have the most amazing televisions to indulge our senses………….


What do you know about the following famous Scotsmen?
