I bought this for my French partner, as a wee gift for Christmas, to help him understand some of our more unique words. I don't think he has had a chance to read it yet, because us 'Scots' in the house, haven't put it down yet. We've read it cover to cover, laughed and reminisced over words we had forgotten and learned some we never knew. A lovely little book, well worth a place in any Scottish household.

I thought this was a great little book! Hearing words from my childhood that I'd forgotten, or that I assumed weren't necessarily Scottish and some that would take a bit of explaining to a non-Scot, I chuckled lots and kept reading out to my partner (also a Scot). Having lived in England for quite a while, this was a little piece of humorous nostalgia. Worth buying.
