Welcome to the Scottish Heritage Home Page!

  The village where I was born.  Chapel Green with the remains of its ancient chapel

is a very special place.  Carved into the gable of the chapel is the date 1093.


"Ah! What visions haunt me

 As I gaze upon the sea!

All the old romantic legends

All my dreams come back to me."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

As of 2/14/13, I have a new website address:  www.scottishheritage.net  Please update your bookmarks. 


My name is Sydney Scott Reekie and my email address is  sbr@bendcable.com.  For the elderly, a  non commercial, personal web site, which this my 'Scottish Heritage' web site is, is a great alternative to sitting in a rocking chair in the idle moments and watching mundane TV programs. For me, my personal web site is a tremendous memory jogger and it provides me with a place to jot down things that I had long forgotten, but now I remember.  As search engines have picked  up on me and I strike a chord and ring a bell with others, messages are coming in from all parts of the world from long forgotten friends and acquaintances who are now scattered around the globe.  In addition to my old friends I am contacted by others who  just wish to communicate with me. I will never meet these cyber friends in person but it's illuminating to know that people in Timbuktu know that I exist and wish to know me and tell me something of their lives. As our beams sweep and crisscross the ether it's like ham radio as in the days of old all over again only now with pin-point accuracy, 24-7.   Now that you have found my website, if what I have written brings forth a smile and one of your memories to you then I will have been well rewarded.

School teacher daughter, Heather, a.k.a. Mrs. Renz is my webmaster. (with a difference)  Without Heather's expertise and technical know-how, this web site would not have begun. Heather is a winner if ever there was one. She's just awesome. Talk about teaching old dogs new tricks! Heather does not do things for me but she points the way. The teacher in her has lead me down paths of discovery that have made  me become self sufficient.  Her motto is, " Never, never, never give up and if at first you don't succeed, like Robert The Bruce observing a spider, try, try, try again until you do." Heather always tells me, "Dad, if you try hard enough and long enough you'll find the way to get it right."

Heather and her ever faithful bud, Macduff, aka Heath and Duffy.

November 21st 2012. A sad day. As Heather was holding him Duffy was called away to Rainbow Bridge

where good dogs go to one day meet up with their loved ones. 


Note: Math is very much alive. Of my web site pages my Octagon page is the most visited. 

My good friend Alberto a.k.a. Albert Lawrie kindly sends me photos of Earlsferry and the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland. Visit Alberto's Hutte and read about the Earlsferry region and Alberto's events of the day. 

This is another  great site to learn about Earlsferry and the East Neuk of Fife.
