Scotland is a nation of dramatic weather and breathtaking landscapes.
Over the centuries, the people who have lived, explored and thrived in this country have developed a rich language to describe their surroundings:
a uniquely Scottish vocabulary shaped by the very environment itself. The artist Amanda Thomson has mined old 19th century Scots language
dictionaries, bringing together the deeply expressive language which has been used to describe land, wood, weather, birds, water and walking. What emerges is a vivid evocation of the nature and the people of Scotland, past and present.
