That seems fine, Pia, but ...
since the phrase sounds like what I wrote, may I say that what you have
written is not what I meant.

No, Scotland is respected in many places because of the amazing number of
Scottish philosophers and scientists that have left their mark on our
society (small S!) since the 18th c, the contribution of Scottish soldiers
in 20th c wars, and the success of popular Scottish ("Celtic") music in the
21st c.
I really do not think that Miss M or Mrs S had anything to do with the Scots
being known and respected around the world -- in non-dancing circles, of
course.
