The article analyses the history of the Scottish settlement in Chełmno (Culm), one of the most important centres of Roman Catholicism in Royal Prussia (province of the Kingdom of Poland). An attempt is made to establish the size of this colony and describe their economic, spiritual, cultural and social activities. The participation of the Scots and their descendants in the local government and guilds, as well as their contribution to the local parish and the Catholic Church as a whole are also discussed.
