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!

GEAN = WILD CHERRY

The gean is a distinctive wild cherry which is a fast growing deciduous tree native to Scotland, and is found in mixed and beech woodlands throughout the country.  

Its lovely white blossom is a welcome sight in spring time.
