Scots migration to Poland

The Inverness Courier has a story on the appointment of David Worthington, the recently appointed history lecturer with the Inverness-based University of the Highlands and Islands Millennium Institute, in which he discusses the long links between Poland and Scotland.

Thousands of Scots have in the last couple of hundred years made their way to Poland, and in more recent years Polish migrants have established themsleves in the Highland capital. Worthington has studied the migration of Scots to the east, including the Leslie family from Aberdeen which ended up in the service of the Holy Roman Empire, and involved in the assassination of an imperial general who was suspected of treason.
