The only real sport of Scottish origin is Shinty. This is similar to the Irish sport of hurling. Think of a cross between Golf and football and you're begining to get there. The is not intirely popular, particuraly in central and lowland Scotland and it is played mostly in the highlands. Football (soccer) remains the most popular sport in Scotland. One other sport than Scot have proved successful at is Curling and this is played commenly by some Scots.
Golf also originates from Scotland.
