    Tywin Lannister, Hand of the King, Warden of the West, and a laugh-track cutaway extra.
    Ah, showbiz.

  • hamefurgid:

    Great for cycling too, nae hills!! Honestly! 

  • unrealeck:

    He’s so right though. Look at Tiree on a satelite map. It’s like perfect green.

  • anonymousgothcat:

    “You Scots sure are a contentious people.” “You’ve just made an enemy for life!”

  • MrRoadhouse1974:

    well said a son of scotland

  • MrRoadhouse1974:

    doesnt matter where in the world our forefathers were dispersed to or not they may have travelled to the furthest places on earth but each and everyone one us can always claim scotland to be oor hame,if it wasnt for us scots who brought more to the table in shaping the modern world as all of us know it then we wouldnt all be online laffin at the engerlish bawbags

  • TheTourmaline57:

    Perhaps if our culture and language had not been stripped from us.Our families dispersed to the four corners of the world either in slavery or indentured servitude.The populace for centuries in service to a parasitic British government .So many would not exhibit the inferiority and insecurity that has been mentioned in several posts below.

  • OMNI SLASHER:

    oh bye the way..if you knew anything about history you’d know that scots have bred some of the most influentual minds in history,here are 2 quotes:OUT OF ALL THE NATIONS,PERHAPS ONLY THE ANCIENT GREEKS CAN BEAT THE SCOTS WHEN IT COMES TOO THE VAST CONTRIBUTIONS ON MANKIND,(WINSTON CHURCHILL,ENGLISH!!!),THE SCOTS IN THE BRIT EMPIRE CREATED THE MODERN WORLD,IN THE SAME WAY AS THE GREEKS DID THE OLD,SCOTS WERE GODS CHOSEN PEOPLE,AND SCOTLAND WAS TOO BECOME THE NEW JERUSALEM…(JOHN KNOX,ENGLISH!)

  • OMNI SLASHER:

    The what now? what do you mean? im from glasgow,n that sounds as if it could be cheeky! 😉 so wtf does it mean then???

  • DaveWBedford:

    He’s just being honest. It’s rather embarrassing being an intelligent man from Scotch land. It has the most insecure and inferiority-ridden populace in the world.

  • DaveWBedford:

    Don’t forget to buy a men’s skirt with your own family name tartan! Never mind if you have an English surname, some bloke sitting in London will have doodled a special tartan just for you!

  • DaveWBedford:

    The image the Scottish tourist board tries to portray is a bloody joke, how can anyone fail to be embarrassed!? And the need many Scotch men feel to wear skirts when they travel and silly tartan hats with orange hair. I can’t think of any other nationality that is as insecure. And drinking a vile orange drink nobody else likes just because it’s “pure scottishh”.

    I’ve always wondered why Scotch TV shows “visit Scotland” adverts to people IN Scotland too. Make sure to get some souvenirs as well!

  • AlexisCapri:

    yes i have, they sound gay

  • NineTails20:

    You obviously have never heard a Dubliner yell “**** OFF” at high volume, then.

  • Acoustic Percussion:

    I’m a Scot and i think Highlanders are a bunch o’ fannies.Most of them only care about money and screwing plenty of it out of tourists.**** yer Craft shops.

  • Olli Watson:

    I really want to punch you in the back of the face for that comment.

  • Arche Medes:

    This guy’s about as funny as rabies – he’s total crap!

  • billhill8:

    This, obviously, was before he became a laird himself

  • AlexisCapri:

    lol there is nobody – and I mean nobody – that can say “**** OFF” better than a Scotsman

  • Stewart Nicol as BILLY CONNOLLY:

    Awwwww – ree misty blue hiiillls offf Tyree – – – – – hahaha **** OFF!

  • MsBkirk:

    Was the bit about Gaelic-language singers bit the inspiration for Harry Hill’s ‘hello hello’?

  • BlogBitch:

    More people in this video are dead than dislike this video.

  • yudyyou:

    Billy in his prime …

  • BuzzcutGtr:
