    As far as I know, just Scottish and Irish from my mum's side and Scottish and English from dad's side. I just class myself as just full Scottish.

    I don't actually know - my mum's adopted and my dad never knew his biological dad, however the one biological grandparent I have is British. But I class myself as the family I do have, so a quarter Irish and the rest British.

    It's very interesting how many people have a mix of the whole UK, guessing that's a common theme since the world consisted of Pangea back in the day, and tribes mixed in certain areas!

    Think these days it's more to do with not needing a passport to travel around the UK.

    Indian on both sides of the family. Though I've always wanted to do one of those DNA tests where you can see your heritage.
    I think it would be interesting since people always presume I'm from the other side of Asia

    Just Irish, to be honest.
    I have a Spaniard in the family I think somewhere up the line from the Armada, so I've got that going for me.

    Sounds boring, but it's really not

    Although I do hate that people class themselves as "White British"...that's not an ethnicity. English, Welsh, Scottish is an ethnicity.

    My grandfather on my mum's side is African of some sorts, sadly I doubt we'd be able to trace it without some DNA test. My grandmother on mum's side has French, Indian and African ancestry,

    My grandfather on my dad's side seems to be fully some type of South Asian, most likely Indian although there is a possibility of him having some sort of white British heritage. My grandmother on my dad's side is Scottish.
