Significant and Famous Scots
(This section is about Scottish born people who made a difference)

A lot of the entries in here come from the book "Biographical Dictionary of Eminent Scotsmen" originally edited by Robert Chambers and then the new edition along with the supplemental volume says by the Rev. Thos. Thomson.  It was published by Blackie and Son of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and London in 1856. Would also like to recognise the work of Jeanette Simpson who has worked very hard to type all this in for us.

Should you be able to provide a brief biography of a Significant Scot that we don't list we'd be delighted to receive it for inclusion in here. Simply email it to Alastair McIntyre

Select the Surname Letter of the person you are looking for and if you don't find the person then do also use our site search engine at the top of the page.
