Scots Blog

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

Its lovely white blossom is a welcome sight in spring time.  Here is a fine example in President Mark's orchard.
