The Scottish Word:


I aye like a thick moggan tae hap ma leg.

Otherwise I’ve got a cauld gap atween mha jaikit an mha gore-tex pro gaiter whaur yon snell wind ootside cuts richt through ma guid winter breeks an jeels ma knees tae the bane.


moggan: The leg of a stocking, especially a coarse woollen stocking without a foot worn as a gaiter, a protective covering for the legs.

I always like to have some thick protection to warmly cover my leg.

Otherwise I’ve got a gap between my jacket and my gore-tex pro gaiter where that there severe wind outside slices right through my good winter trousers and freezes my knees to the bone.

The Scottish Word: moggan with its definition and its meaning illustrated and captioned with the word used in context in the Scots language and in English.
