The Words To The Song Flower Of Scotland




This song was written by Roy Williamson of The Corries (his singing partner was Ronnie Browne) and has been adopted as the unofficial National Anthem of Scotland. It is often played at sporting events and sung by the players and the crowd. It is now commonly played instead of Scotland The Brave.


O Flower of Scotland
When will we see your life again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.

The Fence Aberdeen Zombie post apocalyptic military survival Novel Book

The Aberdeen skies are under attack from an enemy jet. It is spilling a strange yellow smoke. Minutes later, people start killing each other.
Former Royal Air Force Regiment Gunner Jason Harper witnesses this and then his wife, Pippa, telephones him, shouting that she needs him. They then get cut off. He sets straight out, unprepared for the nightmare that unfolds during his journey. Everyone seems to want to kill him.
Along the way, he pairs up with fellow survivor Imogen. But she enjoys killing the living dead far too much. Will she kill Jason in her blood thirst? Or will she hinder his journey through this zombie filled dystopian landscape to find his pregnant wife?
The Fence is the first in this series of post-apocalyptic military survival thrillers from the torturous mind of local horror and science fiction novel writer C.G. Buswell.

The hills are bare now,
And autumn leaves lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.


Those days are past now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again!
That stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again.


O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edwards army,
And sent him homeward
Tae think again
