Who are the Scots?

Sir William Fettes (1750 - 1836) Merchant and philanthropist, who made his fortune from tea and wine. Left money to establish Fettes College (1870), which was designed by David Bryce. The College was intended for the education of poor and orphaned children, but is now one of Scotland's top private schools, although it still retains a tradition of scholarships for poorer children.
