The Scottish Word:


“I’m awfie sairie sir, the sunblocks are gey shilpit an consequently it’s takin ages tae rub enough on.”


shilpit: thin, insipid, puny.

“I am so very sorry sir, the sunblocks are rather thin and and as a consequence it is taking much longer to rub enough on.”


The summer some of us wished we’d had in the UK and never got.

My drawing reminds me of Robert Shaw in from Russia with Love – minus the smile though.

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