1. A night out with your Scottish BFF always involves a few bevvies.

You'll drink Tennents and probably a bit of Buckie. And you'll no doubt spend a portion of the evening chanting. Put it simply, you'll have the best night of your life.

2. And your BFF won't judge you if you inhale a deep fried pizza and loads of chips on the way home.

In fact, they'll probably join you.

Your pal will tell you the things you need to hear. And sometimes the things you don't. Either way, they'll make sure you know what they think.

5. Unnecessary drama? Your Scottish BFF won't stand for it.

Moaning about how your friend wore the same outfit as you, and it was like, really, really shady won't be tolerated. Which means you can just get on with enjoying the important stuff in life.

6. Need a lazy day? Your Scottish best friend will sit beside you.

And not once will they try to persuade you to leave the house. Scots appreciate the art of a good sit.

12. Seriously, a Scot can turn even the most stubborn frown upside down.

13. They'll also do whatever they can to protect you from getting hurt.

Scots are fiercely protective and will do anything for you, whether it's throwing a drink over your enemy or kicking a terror suspect in the balls. As you do.

Scots take New Year very seriously: They hold the biggest street party in the world and give you two bank holidays afterwards.
