Large ancient talking tree in the forbidden to climb tree reserve speaking to a small child amongst its roots.
The Scottish Word:


Dinni worry chiel, wee yins like yersel will hae speelin hecks made o stane when the last o us wid is gone ahn the plastic’s done.

Nae speelin oan me. The last o the auld trees.


speel, speil: to climb or clamber

Do not worry child, small one’s like yourself will have climbing frames made of stone when the last of the wood is gone and all the plastic’s done.

No climbing on me. The last of the old trees.

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

Except of course if the world gets so bad that trees become incredibly rare it’ll be us that will be gone and nature will be busy, without us, recovering in all its glory.
