Welcome to our wee country!
At Wilderness Scotland, we enjoy taking travellers from around the world on amazing journeys through the Scottish countryside.
Part of the charm of our country is our distinctive language and even those who can speak fluent English may struggle to understand some of our local dialects. But fear not, we’re here to help you learn all about bairns (kid) bampots (crazy people) quines (girls) and loons (young men). Scotland’s many dialects can change in a relatively small distance keeping even us Scots on our toes. Keep this handy phrasebook will have you havering (talking rubbish) with the locals in no time!
