A celebration of the irreplaceable magic of language, and the wit and wisdom of 1,000 Scottish words.

The Scots language is an ancient and lyrical tongue, inherently linked to the country's history and identity, its land and culture. In Cauld Blasts and Clishmaclavers, Robin Crawford has gathered 1,000 words from his native land - old and new, classical and colloquial, rural and urban - in a joyful and witty celebration of their continuing usage and unique character.
