Dae ye
talk Scots?


Scottish Sayings are fascinating, rich, genuine, colourful, unique, underrated or not even rated at all and that's probably because they aren't known well enough on a global scale. That has to stop right now. From this moment onwards they are at least animated and hopefully this will help bring them in the spotlight to connoisseurs and newbies alike.

#scottishsayings are brought to you by Andrei Staruiala, a Romanian living in Scotland, hungry to absorb as much of its culture as possible.

Play, enjoy, share and submit your own Scottish Sayings ... you never know, we might make a season two if people are asking for an encore.
