Abstract: This qualitative paper adopts a historical approach and reports on desk research conducted by the author using a mixture of internet based research backed up by a critical reading of published writings on the travelling people of Scotland. This blend of the old and the new allows the author to take a critical look back through time at a proud entrepreneurial people. Another innovative data source used is that of Traditional Scottish Ballads and songs. The gist of the paper is that travelling people can (and deserve) to be viewed as an entrepreneurial people because epistemologically and ontologically there is congruence between the entrepreneurial traits and entrepreneurial narratives of Travellers and the settled people of their native Scotland.
