London: Many may not believe it, but a 106-year-old Scottish woman has put her longevity to being a "virgin".
According to `The Scottish Sun`, Isa Blyth, born in 1904, has never even been kissed and she thinks that staying single has made her stay strong.

"I`m not sure if anyone ever tried it on – but they never got anywhere! She says she never felt the need for romance and never had time for a man. She did like the odd sherry though," her 67-year-old niece Sheena Campbell said.

Isa instead kept herself busy going to flower club and church, singing in the choir, and playing golf or gardening. She`s always lived in Edinburgh and worked for 35 years at whisky producer North British Distilleries in the city.

"She was wrapped up in her church and she loved her choir and flower club. And she had a high-powered job, which meant she was always busy. I think she was also a bit of a maiden lady as she was the first-born and acted as a head with her six brothers and sisters.

"She never had time to be sad. She`s an amazing character. You wouldn`t believe she was 106," Sheena was quoted by the British tabloid as saying.
