  1. Thanks for these. Its interesting to see how us Scots are being thought of in America. Looks like we are still pretty cool.

  2. Oops. Sorry. Didn’t mean to be rude. All these fellows are great as well. It’s just that James is my favorite.

  3. One question….are there any un-sexy Scottish men? Each of these men are so different but so charming. I don’t know if it is because of Craig (I suspect it is) but they all seem so unpretentious and yet still so manly-man.
