Funny Scottish words

I love Scotland…the people, the sites, the history, and the language. Here’s a little ditty I wrote about a few of the Scottish words that made me grin. Enjoy.

Funny Scottish words

Cullen skink
didn’t stink
unless smoked haddock chowder
would never be in your louder.

Ben Mor
that low mountain
should be higher,
more height for this land-stunted sire.

Harry Coos
those fuzzy highland moos
so docile and sweet
too bad for them the Scots
love their meat.

Wee dram of whisky
drinking it could be risky,
it’s so strong
you’ll break out in song.

Rabbie Burns
is Robert Burns
a Scottish farmer poet
with a perchance
for romance.

A tattie scone
not long before it’s gone
that potato flat bread
sure to please even a veg head.
