Scots Blog

The Scots language has a rich tradition, and abounds with marvellous words. Each week this blog will show a different Scots or Gaelic word with its English equivalent. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do!

These elegant birds are among my favourites, and were a common sight when I lived on a croft on South Deeside, not far from Aberdeen.  The name is an imitation of the bird's cry.
