I love accents and am eager to understand those who speak with them, especially when the speaker uses English as a second language. So isn’t it funny that the accent I most struggle with is Scottish?
It is a good reminder of how different Scottish culture is. Lest you think we are similar, listen to that sometimes impenetrable brogue, as
distinct from British English as is it from American.
Within the UK, they may have their colours and pounds in common, but their cultures are as distinct as their histories. It will be fascinating to track Scottish identity as Brexit takes effect.
Though the best parts of Scotland won’t change: its warm people, lush green glens and crystal blue lochs, its welcoming
villages, its cozy cafes and pubs. Read our guests’ impressions of Central Scotland and use our Inverness guide to consider all the options.
Let us translate the accent and culture for you on our two Scotland Untours. Here are some fun reads about a nation we
love. Choose the Scotland of your dreams!
