Lalland Scots

Lalland Scots is the main language still spoken in Scotland today, albeit in it's present form diluted somewhat with English.

Much like the Aboriginal languages of North America it is not recognised as an official language.  It was banned in schools across Scotland throughout the last century.  Most children still spoke it at home, but at school were forced to read, write and speak English instead!  

If you would like to learn more about this fascinating language (the language of Robert Burns - Poet) the Scottish Culture and heritage and be able to understand the native's on any trip to Bonnie Scotland, then  come along for a 'Guid wee blether' at our Lalland Scots workshop.
