The Scottish Word:


Diz yer weeyin want saut n veenegar wi his supper?

Ahn what aboot a pickled egg half price, as they’re a wee bit green?


saut: salt.

Does your small child want salt and vinegar with his fish and chip supper?

And what about a pickled egg at half price, as they are a little green in colour?

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

The Global Pandemic.

We wear masks and avoid enclosed spaces to keep ourselves and others safe. We stay home, we don’t visit friends and relatives.

A Great Mental Health Handbook.

This Free booklet will inform and help you with How to Stay Calm in a Global Pandemic by Dr Emma Hepburn (Published by Hachette.)
How to stay calm in a global pandemic by Dr. Emma Hepburn.

Dr Hepburn communicates easily about the mental issues that may affect us without being scholastic and she draws witty and informative illustrations to back it up.

Not Just for the Middle of The Pandemic.
