The Scottish dreamscape has its origins in the period from 1760 to 1868 and emerged in the context of both British integration and European Romantic nationalism. By the late twentieth century, the Scottish dreamscape had become a thoroughly global fantasy of a local culture. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Scotland of popular imagination is a land of kilts, tartan, bagpipes, clans, Celts, and Highland Games. In the course of the nineteenth century, the urban, Anglophone elites of Edinburgh gradually adopted the costume, music, and poetry of the Highlands. They also created new symbols and rituals in what they considered to be a Highland tradition. After the parliamentary Union with England in 1707, Scotland struggled with the concept of Britain and with English dominance in political and economic affairs.
