Scotland is a nation renowned for its beautiful scenery and strong musical heritage. Also, of course, it was the scene of work done towards the development of Adolphe Sax's great invention. William Meikle of Strathaven, Lanarkshire, designed his caledonica in 1825, and his alto fagotto (made by George Wood in London) in 1830. There are examples of these instruments in the nearby University of Edinburgh Collection of Historic Musical Instruments.
