The Thistle is found throughout the highlands, islands and lowlands of Scotland. The prickly purple thistle has been Scotland’s national emblem for centuries. Legend has it that when Scotland was part of the kingdom of Norway the Scottish clansmen would plant the prickly thistles to alert them when the Norsemen were creeping bare foot through the undergrowth.
