Can someone tell me about Scottish terriers?

I'm getting one soon, and I'd like to know a bit more about them. How tall do they get? How much do they weigh? Stuff like that. Thanks! :)

Update:

My parents are getting one for the family, not me, and i'd like to know some fun facts/personal experience. I'm not that stupid to get a dog that i barely know about; I already have experience with dogs and know how to care for them.

    I currently own a magnificent Scottie. She is a great little addition to the family. I would have to warn you that Scotties are terriers meaning they can be reserved and sometimes perhaps aggressive towards strangers and other animals. Make sure to not give in to their sneaky little ways like nudging for treats or whining for attention. They are intelligent but this may only benefit themselves rather than the owner. I wish I saw more of these dogs nowadays as you don't see them too often. Great pets for the right owners.

    I know there was a Scottish terrier on Disney's lady and the Tramp. I have a neighbor down the street that has 3 or 4 of them along with a dachshunds. Every time I walk by the house they look out the window and head for the doggie door to come out in the yard.

    http://www.stca.biz/index.php?Itemid=140 -- Please understand this is not a breed for everybody! They are difficult to housetrain and not good with children.

    You cannot ride them, pulll on their tail or their ears. They have German Shephard size teeth!!! You really need to love this breed before acquiring one.

    We've owned the breed for 35 years and love them; we also do not have children.
