Undiscovered Scotland: Timeline of Scottish History
Timeline of Scottish History Wherever you turn in Scotland you come across signs of an incredibly complex and remarkably violent history. It might be one of the 2700 castles built in an often vain attempt to defend land, property and lives: or one of the innumerable battlefields where ordinary Scots fought, often with one another, and usually in pursuit of someone else's ambitions or beliefs. Or it might be one of the seemingly endless succession of castles and houses, large and small, in which Mary Queen of Scots is said to have spent the night. Some understanding of Scottish history is essential if you are to get any real feel for a country with such a turbulent past.

It has been liberally edited for use at this site to include significant events dealing with the Sinclair family, which are highlighted in color, and to expand upon the original historical references.

Timeline of prehistoric Scotland
This timeline of prehistoric Scotland is a chronologically ordered list of important archaeological sites in Scotland and of major events affecting Scotland's human inhabitants and culture during the prehistoric period. The period of prehistory prior to occupation by the genus Homo is part of the geology of Scotland. Prehistory in Scotland ends with the arrival of the Romans in southern Scotland in the 1st century AD and the beginning of written records. The archaeological sites and events listed are the earliest examples or among the most notable of their type. No traces have yet been found of either a Neanderthal presence or of Homo sapiens during the Pleistocene interglacials, the first indications of humans in Scotland occurring only after the ice retreated in the 11th millennium BC.

It is estimated that a total of 20,000 Romans faced 30,000 Caledonian warriors. It has been estimated that 10,000 Caledonian lives were lost for only 360 Romans. 20,000 Caledonians escaped!
