Something I wondered about Scotland:

I used to read of many scots in the services of Swedish kings throughout the 18th century, and I know that Vikings occupied many parts of northern Britannia.
This led me to the conclusion that there ought to be many Scandinavian genes running in the lochs of bonny Scotland.
This stands in contrast with the popular image of Scotland amongst the nations: Red hairish people whom are severe violence prone (I'm talking about the women) and bad teethed kilt wearing men.

Which is the truth? Is there a Viking look in Scotland? Do the people differ in their over all look depending on areas
in Scotland? Low lands or High lands (Or have I been reading too much Rob Roy?)?
