My brain can’t get out of first gear but here’s a few.

 

4. The Kelpies

5. The Royal Mile

7. The Falkirk Wheel

8. Think it’s meant to be Inverness but there’s an E missing

9. John O’Groats

17. Dundee Cake

21. Famous Grouse

 

I’ll try to add more, later.

Yeah: they must have meant 2 words for 21, rather than 3 (unless they missed out "THE"...)

We need more progress on the "Nature" ones:

 

I've been staring at that list for ages thinking 'surely they'd have put "capercaillie" on it, and:

30 = Capercaillie

Sorry , I’ve stared and stared and can’t get any 

OK - Counting the ones other FMs have already listed, I think I've got all of them now except 22 and 24.

 

As already mentioned, unless I'm badly wrong here, I think at least two of the anagrams are missing letters, and on top of that at least one other is misspelt.

 

Don't know if there's any time pressure on this, but to give everyone some more time I won't post my compiled list until late Tuesday / Wednesday morning (or later if preferred...) 

OK: here's my collated list - many of the answers have been provided in this thread by other FMs, but I've added some of my own, particularly in the "Nature" section.

By my reckoning, only 22 and 24 are missing...

 

1) Frodo

2) Isle of Skye

3) Stirling Castle

4) The Kelpies

5) The Royal Mile

6) Aberdeen

7) The Falkirk Wheel

8) Inverness (assuming the anagram's missing an "E"...)

9) John O’Groats

  

Section 2 Music:

10) Bay City Rollers

11) Runrig

12) Annie Lennox

13) Deacon Blue

 

Section 3 To do:

14) Toss the Caber

15) Play the Bagpipes

16) Scottish Country Dancing (assuming the anagram's missing an "O"...)

 

Section 4 Eat and Drink:

17) Dundee Cake

18) Haggis Tatties and Neaps (although the correct spelling is "neeps"...)

19) Famous Grouse (two words, not three...)

20) Irn Bru

21) Square Sausage

22) ?

23) Arbroath Smokies

  

Section 5 Nature 

24) ?

25) Scottish Wildcat

26) Shetland Pony

27) Belted Galloway

28) Aberdeen Angus

29) Scottish Deerhound

30) Capercaillie

31) Loch Ness Monster 

32) Cairn Terrier

I think 22 is meant to be Clootie Dumpling but there are two Ls missing.

Yes, I think you're right.

As with capercaillie, I had a feeling "clootie dumpling" would be in there, but couldn't get it to work. 

Now that there does appear to be some missing letters, it makes sense that that's what's happening here too.
