What Are Your Favourite Scottish Words?
If someone asked you 'Wheres ma baffies?' would you know what they meant? I ask this because my cousin recently visited me and I asked him if he knew where ma baffies were! he looked at me as if I was speaking double dutch. I then explained that it was my slippers I was looking for.
This got me thinking to what other Scottish words that I use regularly that folk might not know what I mean.
When visitors ask me about walks in the area I describe some as 'Sprauchley' as this is one of my favorite word to use as is 'Drookit', which I have been using quiet a bit recently
We have some 'braw' words to describe things in Scotland and would love to learn some new words. And if there is a word you don't know what it means please ask.
