Scottish Thistle at Loch Tarff - South Loch Ness - Inverness Scotland

There is a legend which relates how a sleeping party of Scots warriors were almost set upon by an invading band of Vikings and were only saved when one of the attackers trod on a wild thistle with his bare feet. His cries raised the alarm and the roused Scots duly defeated the Danes. In gratitude, the plant became known as the Guardian Thistle and was adopted as the symbol of Scotland.

Thistle, common throughout the highlands, islands and lowlands of Scotland, the prickly purple thistle has been Scotland's NATIONAL EMBLEM for centuries. This proud and regal plant, which grows to a height of five feet, has no natural enemies because of the vicious spines that cover and protect it like a porcupine.
