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!

SEG or SEGGAN = YELLOW FLAG IRIS
What a welcome and lovely sight this flower is in the late spring! It loves wet conditions such as in bog lands, and can also be readily cultivated in water features in gardens.
Large stands of seggan in western Scotland form a very important feeding and breeding habitat for the endangered corn crake.
