Now, being a ‘cool’ dad is a matter of perspective so what does it take to make the top list?

The top attribute says 42% of Scots – is the ability to be dependable closely followed by being honest (37%) and being themselves (36%).


Prince William, Earl of Strathearn takes the spot of the coolest dad according to 16% of Scots.

The Earl can add this accolade to the celebrations as he celebrates his 39th birthday this coming week – 21st June.

Despite his many titles, he is ‘Dad’ to seven-year-old George, six-year-old Charlotte and three-year-old Louis.


‘Can you smell what the Rock is cookin?’ apparently some cool dad points at least as he is number two on the list of coolest dads.

The 49-year-old actor and ex-wrestler has three beautiful daughters – Simone (19), Jasmine (5) and Tiana (3).
