Wirds in the Windaes
The town of Keith, in Moray, is now offering the visitors their very own 'Scots Language Shopping Experience'. Over 20 businesses on Mid Street, in the town centre, are displaying Scots words in their windows. Each word is given with its derivation, meaning and usage explained. This experience comes as part of a bigger plan to put Keith firmly on the map as a Scots Toun, a place where the visitor can experience the language at first hand in a variety of ways. Maggie Cruickshank, who owns Mither Tongue gift shop on Mid Street, has led the initiative over a number of years, together with a number of other local businessmen and women. If you would like to find out more, or become involved, please visit www.mithertongue.com or phone 07535 351406.
