I am I6 years old and almost all of my ancestors were 
scottish or scots-irish. I would love to learn this beautiful 
language. It doesn't seem that hard, maybe because I already 
know some from reading the old books. On my mother's side 
I have McLannens, Logans and Bruces, on my fathers I have 
Wallace And Todd as well as some english. Thanks for this 
site it was fun to look through.

You´re not gonna believe this but I went to a reading in 
Glasgow. I could understand almost everything, being 
Swedish, but my Australian friend who was with me had 
troubles understanding anything at all! This I must follow up!

My grandmother came from Glasgow, my Grandfather from 
Kircauldy. My father went as a small child to visit his 
Glasgow uncles with his mother. Caught by the war they 
stayed a year or two.
I thought my grandmother's language the most beautiful 
sound, and when she and my father got together the Scots 
would fly back and forth, like a very special music between 
Their humour became more "fundamental" in Scots. Is it in 
the language or was it in them, I've often wondered.
My grandmother (a Mackie) often took me aside as a very 
young child to teach me some basic sounds and phrases and 
to remind me to be proud of my Scots heritage, she said it 
made me special, and I've always believed her. When things 
get tough I remember her grit.
When my grandmother died my father never again uttered a 
word of the Scots language, and I miss it so.
I'm so happy to find your site. Thank you for it. Scots still has 
the power like nothing else, to make me laugh and cry. I do 
need your dictionary though.
As my father would say,
Here's tae us, wha's like us.
