I am developing an illustrated children’s book called ‘Heroes Of Scotland’. It is a book aimed at teaching them that they can look up to or even emulate scientists, engineers, inventors, great minds etc not just pop stars, actors and footballers. Entertaining and engaging them with detailed, hand drawn, colourful and humorous illustrations.

I will be adding the obvious famous Scots but I am looking for the more obscure and forgotten figures, especially women, from Scottish history. Please comment below with your suggestions and the reason for their inclusion.

If you wish to donate to this project it would be greatly appreciated. Any contributors will have their name added to the book not as a hero of Scotland but a hero of mine.
