Long Description: 
Scotland has been a part of the United Kingdom for more than 300 years, yet it has managed to maintain its distinct customs, culture and character. Joseph dons his tartan and joins the Scottish clans for a bit of culture and fun at The Gathering in Edinburgh where hundreds of clans and thousands of people come together for sport, folk dancing, arts, crafts and bag piping. During his travels Joseph explores Glasgow, imbibes a dram or two of the local product at an island whiskey distillery and meets his grace, the Duke of Argyle, at Inverary Castle during the Campbell clans' Highland Games.
