From stealing whisky, kitchen sinks, wine, or even bodies to robbing coach loads of tourists (in the nicest possible way). From the days of the celebrated cattle thief Rob Roy, Scotland has had more than a little obsession with the fabled skills of the light-fingered. Especially if the thieves are of a benevolent disposition and like to give something back.
