Founded in 1979, Unicorn Limited provides information in a variety of formats on Celtic, Viking, Scottish, Scots-Irish, and Scottish-American topics. Owned and operated by Dr. W. R. McLeod and his wife Vicki, Unicorn long were a fixture at the Scottish Highland Games. In the autumn of 2016, they retired from the Games, and now concentrate on their Internet and mail business. Whether you're looking for more information on your family's history or for an elusive older bagpipe tune, Unicorn is your best source for all things Scottish.
Every week, we send out emails to our special customers, detailing new arrivals, special deals, and items of interest to all good Scots-Americans.

W. R. (Renny) McLeod is a graduate of Auburn University, with a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in early 18th-century British studies. He taught for 31 years at West Virginia University, including classes in Celtic, Scottish, Viking, and English history. He and his wife are the authors of many scholarly as well as popular publications. He retired from his university position in 2000, and in 2003 the McLeods moved back "home" to the Auburn- Loachapoka area. They founded Unicorn Limited in 1979, and still enjoy working with the books every day. Renny is a member of Clans MacLeod and Mackintosh.
Vicki McLeod is a graduate of West Virginia University and the Gemological Institute of America. She is the author of several Scottish-themed cookbooks. For years, she specialized in antique and estate Scottish jewelry and small Scottish antiques, and always could be found "behind the cases" at the Highland Games. Because Unicorn's jewelry offerings are more occasional than they were in the "Games days," Vicki now spends more of her time in her first love of editing the books and getting them ready to go to press. In 2003, she bid farewell to the winters of her native West Virginia, and now enjoys life in the sunny South. She is a member of Clans Buchanan and Scott.
