Scotland is located in Bon Homme County, South Dakota, and has a population of 841 as of the 2010 census, a decrease in population of about 6% from the 2000 census.

German, Czech, Norwegian, and Irish immigrants settled in the area and the town itself was incorporated on March 13, 1886.
Scotland was formed as a post office along the stage route from Yankton, and at first Gunnville was suggested as the name. But the family of Gunn refused and so it was decided that it be called Scotland.

Visit Instructions:
To post a log to an existing U.S. Post Office waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the post office in the background if that is possible.

A description of your Post Office is required, such as when it was built, history, outstanding or unique features, population of the city or town, just do a quick internet search and find an interesting bit of information about the city or town and add it to the long description, to make it more interesting. Even just adding in the population of the area can give others an idea of how many people this post office serves. This description should be at least three sentences.

If your Post Office has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
Including your gps device in the picture is not necessary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval, as long as all other details of your log are acceptable.
