We are Gypsies NOT Roms NOT Travellers...
There are three different nomadic races of Scotland: The Travellers, The Gypsies, and The Romany.
The Scottish Travellers are white skinned Celtics who originated from Rome, Italy. Their religion is heavily Catholic. They may see Faeries as “fun to tell stories of” but they do not believe in them as real, not worship them as deity. They were woodworkers, tinsmiths, and sheep herders. They have no tradition of magic arts. They are very, very, very white often, nearly albino, with very thin and frail looking blond or red hair, and blue or green eyes.
The Scottish Gypsies originated from Persian Magi, and follow a religious tradition of magic arts and Fae worship. We wear fur robes and heavily embroidered silks and are known for our cloth, needlework, rugs, tapestries, robes, and magic arts. We wear bright red clothes, tall red hats and were called by the Celtics “Little People” because most of us are under 5’6” tall. The Irish called us Leprechauns because our people made fancy silk embroidered shoes. We have golden reddish-olive skin, resembling pale Native Americans. And very thick wavy dark reddish-brown to black hair, and dark green to dark brown eyes that look black from a distance.

The Romany Gypsies of Scotland aka the Scottish/Welsh Romanichals originated from India. They are known for their music and dances, and clothes of many colours. Their religious tradition is a blend of Hindu and Catholicism. They have a rich tradition of belly dancing and spicy foods. They have very dark skin of a deep golden brown colour, thick straight black hair, and brown black eyes.
My people, we are the Scottish Gypsies, descended from the Magi. We are in no way related to the Romany or the Travellers. We are the people the Celts referred to as “The Little People”. Our magic arts were feared by even the Romany and the Travellers, who like other races and cultures saw us Gypsies as “the children of Satan” due to our use of the magic arts.
For 500 years our family simply said they were Scottish and Native American and no one bothered us. Then Stephen King's film producers show up and want to use us and our cars in that movie they were doing, said King had based some story on our clan and wanted to film the movie on location. They were here maybe 5 hours, long enough to get shots of various streets, houses, landmarks, etc. They wanted us in our traditional clothes wandering around the amusement park, and they wanted us to drive our cars off the Saco turnpike exit 5 into Old Orchard Beach. They were really bossy and bitchy and mad because they wanted lots of fog, and King had told them our town was foggy, but they were here at the wrong time of the year for the fog, so they had to bring in fog machines and they were all mad about that. I think somebody in the clan got paid for letting them in here with their cameras. I don't know who, just know it wasn't me. And that was it. We never heard from them again, they disappeared as quickly as they came.
