Scotland Small?

Scotland small? is a poem by Hugh MacDiarmid.

In the poem MacDiarmid explains how people who see Scotland as small or uninteresting are not looking hard enough:

Sitting there and resting and gazing around
Sees not only the heather but blueberries…

You can read the whole poem at ‘Scotland small?’ Scottish Poetry Library

The Biggies have created pages about some of the Scottish wild flowers mentioned in the poem:
