Scotland has a lot of land and forest, and hunting is a very popular sport. Many homes- especially historic homes- will have deer heads mounted on the wall, because the men in the house proudly displayed their biggest achievements. It is not uncommon to see other forms of taxidermy, as well, like foxes, turkeys, and more. If you are vegan, or taxidermy creeps you out in general, you can still get the look with fake deer heads and other animal inspired pieces. The whole point is to somehow incorporate images of the local wild life into the design.
