Scotland has been thrust into the international spotlight - for its fleet of gritters.

People across the world have taken notice of our "incredible" snowfleet, and the hilarious names that go with them.

Names range from Gritty Gritty Bang Bang to Yes Sir Ice Can Boogie, to Chilly Connolly and Fred - and some people cannot believe the names are real.

A Twitter user in California shared an image of our impressive fleet, and her tweet has so far reached almost 50,000 retweets and more than 200,000 likes since being posted yesterday

Jackie Sojico wrote: "I just learned that Scotland names their entire snowplow fleet and the names are incredible."

And people from across the world have jumped on the message to share their thoughts.

One could not quite believe it was real, and wrote: "I can't believe you went through all the effort to make this fake map and these fake names for a good tweet because this can't be real..."

Another wrote: "I think it’s pretty clear by now that Scotland is the comedy king of the world."

And a third said: "So many questions. 1. Who gets to pick the names? They're so fun. 2) is that the whole fleet? I feel like that # of plows is needed for just my village in VT! 3) why can't we be as cool as Scotland?"

Fans of the fleet can track their favourite names using an interactive map.
