A key addition to your local book range, this new title is ideal for both visitors to Scotland and residents looking for an entertaining and informative read.
Although Scotland is not a big country there are different dialects in Orkney, Shetland, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow with many who live in the Hebrides speaking Gaelic, not a dialect but a language.
Get out your brolly or gamp if its stoatin’ in Glasgow, pourin’ in Dundee, rahian in Orkney or you hear tömald or vaanloop forecast in Shetland. If a place is described as clustered, boggin, manky or eltit avoid it at all costs! Try cabbi claw in Aberdeen, clapshot in Auld Reekie, pink lint in Dundee and a jeely piece in Glasgow.
Would you shop for a lice and nits jersey in Orkney or take a sip of uisge-beatha in the Hebrides? Find out about Up Helly Aa, Skara Brae, Clo Mor, cotton mills, tartan and some faur-kent folk.
