Where and what is Scotland, USA, you say?... Let me tell you all about Alma - Scotland USA! In the middle of everything is Alma, Michigan, otherwise referred to as Scotland, USA! That's what the sign says, that's what we stick with and that's what we celebrate! Now is a great time to mention, if you haven't been to a Highland Festival yet, it's time you go!
For as long as I can remember, I looked forward to the time when Alma came alive to the sound of bagpipes. As a child, it wasn't uncommon to hear a bagpiper practicing off in the distance while playing at the many parks in town. And we were always looking forward to the annual Highland Festival and Games each Memorial Day Weekend!

Clare has a rich history that goes back much further than my memories recall. In the 1800's it was busting with railroad activity. My grandpa was a farmer, and my ancestors were Amish, so I have been attending Amish events and frequenting Amish owned businesses since I can remember. I even remember attending concerts at the Clare County Fairgrounds, I got Willie Nelson's autograph there when I was 10 years old.
