ah so scottish people have not been weaving plaid for a long time?

sure they were duller colours that acted as perfect camoflage in the heather but it was still tartan

can you show me some bagpipes from elsewhere that are exactly like the highland bagpipe? But yes people across the world have created instruments out of bladders and flutes but show me where the music style is found elsewhere in the world that is like the gaelic

also prove to me that gaelic people weren't boiling meat in a sheeps stomach for thousands of years

the celts show their lingustic seeds and genetic markers spread across europe and across to turkey. So what? You can't inhabit a land covered in ice
