Stone thrown by Scotsman for European national (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

estonian

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'european national' is the definition.
'estonian' can be an answer for 'national' (I've seen this before). I am not sure about the 'european' bit.

'stone thrown by scotsman' is the wordplay.
'thrown' indicates anagramming the letters.
'by' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'scotsman' becomes 'ian' (common Scottish name).
'stone' with letters rearranged gives 'eston'.
'eston'+'ian'='ESTONIAN'

'for' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for estonian that I've seen before include "E. European", "Person from Tallinn, say.", "One from Tallinn", "Native of a Baltic republic", "Northern European".)
