Scots Tung Wittins

25th August 2011

Richard Heinsar, the Convener of Scots Tung, has been keeping us up to date with events in that society. He told us that Scots Tung has recently responded to an appeal for funds made by the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway  and made a generous donation of £1,000. One of the most important aims of the museum is to make Burns more available to children. In thanks the museum has agreed to put the words 'Scots Tung - Aye Ettlin Tae Uphaud Scots' on one of its glass doors near the entrance.

Scots Tung have recently suggested one easy way of maintaining and promoting Scots, by giving your home a house name in the language.  They say "Insteid o the likes o 'West Winds' or 'The Pines' whit wey nae the likes o 'Canty Neuk', 'Laich Hoose' or 'Hame frae the Sea'?".
