Scotland: Land of Drunks?

Everyone knows that Scotland is a beautiful country. The Trossachs, Edinburgh, Isle of Skye, I could go on and on...

What I did notice were the inordinant amount of sots walking around in broad daylight going about their business as if drunken food shopping was not anything out of the ordinary.

Scots on their lunch break, smoking break, loo break, etc. running around the corner for the drink or four was commonplace. I often wondered if it was the absurdly high levels of alcohol in their systems that prevented me from comprehending their diction.

From my anecdotal evidence, this number seems low.
