Uri Geller’s Scottish Island

Although controversial, and certainly unproven, some historical researchers believe that the Scots royal lineage may have its roots in ancient Egypt. The story goes that around 1400 BC, an Egyptian princess by the name of Scota (rumored to be legendary King Tutankhamen's half-sister), travelled from Egypt to Ireland where she and her entourage settled. In around 300 BC, some of Princess Scotas descendents migrated and settled in Scotland, becoming the ancestors, at least in part, of Scottish royalty. Tales of royalty traveling from exotic Egypt are accompanied by tales of great treasure, as yet undiscovered.
