What’s the Word?

For the heck of it, I went Googling to find a word which means “lover of Scotland or all things Scottish,” in the vein of “Francophile” and “Anglophile.” I found two words, neither of which are perfectly satisfactory and not at all in common usage: “Caledonophile” and “Ecossophile.” (Both, of course, are more pleasing than the more-common Scotophile.) Searching for these two words together lead me to a nice little Googlewhack of sorts. Who says that isn't good for anything?

This is how I chose to waste 20 minutes while the chicken finished baking.
