Well, just everybody loves unicorns, even squeaky voiced villains like
Minions. We Scots seem to have a particular thing for unicorns. They have
been supporters for Scotland's royal arms for hundreds of years. James V,
King of Scots, commissioned a now-lost set of tapestries known as "The Hunt
for the Unicorn". A few years ago a new set was copied from one at the
Cloisters Museum in New York, and now the unicorns grace the walls of his
restored palace at Stirling Castle.
