Scots Language Centre Centre for the Scots Leid

An interview with Colin Wilson

Colin Wilson has been a prominent Scots language activist for over two decades. He is a campaigner and writer and his Scots Language Learner course has recently been republished by Luath. Colin grew up in a Scots speaking family in North East Scotland. He has been active in a number of Scots language organisations, translated the Scottish Government's national conversation into Scots and won a long fight to have Scots used in civil weddings. 

In 2010 the Scots language Centre chatted to Colin Wilson about the Scots language he heard while growing up in the North East of Scotland. This short film shows Colin and Dauvit discussing language influences and shifts.
