Family member just moved to Scotland - are there any Scottish pens or inks that are hard to find outside the U.K.?  Not yard-o-led expensive, either.  Thanks for any suggestions!

I do not know of any industrial productions that are current but there is a long association of pens and Scotland 
Onoto / TDLR were at  Strathendry works, Leslie in Fife and when they moved production there was a lot of stock  in the local area. I know of one shoe-box of parts that is in the attic of a friend in Montrose and someday I hope it will be mine.
The other name associated with Scotland is synonymous with the rhyme ....
They come as a boon and a blessing to men,
the Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley Pen.
The famous advertising slogan of
 Macniven and Cameron Ltd., later known as Waverley Cameron Ltd the stationers in Edinburgh who also made items named  "Phaeton", "Nile", "Hindoo" and "Commercial"

This is a fabulous way for me to pass along some names without having to supply a list.  Thank you!
