The Scotian script was created by Doug Barton to write Scotian, a language he has constructed. The letters are based mainly on Latin and Greek, but are reversed.
The Scotian alphabet used today was developed by medieval scribes to replace the original Scotian writing system, good for carving in stone but hard to write. These guys had access to both Byzantine and western texts since their script is a Greco-Roman hybrid; a lot of them must have been left-handed as well because several letters are mirrors of the original. These letters were primarily based on the miniscules coming into use at the time but there are some Scotian innovations.
