With the current proliferation of great bars and pubs it can be hard to stand out.

Thankfully, with some chalk, a blank sign and little bit of that sharp Scottish wit, you can get people's attention.

Scotland is filled with bartanders who seem to moonlight as amateur comedians and so we end up with some of the best - and funniest - pub signs around.

We've scoured the country - and social media - to pick out some of the best we could find for your amusement.

Just remember drinking alcohol can cause memory loss, or worse memory loss (Don't worry the actual pub signs are much funnier).
