The Scots language has a long and colourful history, that stretches back well over a thousand years. Part of its colour isn't just the glorious words, but also the unique sayings. Celebrate the power and spirit of the language with this handsome vintage-style poster, drawn by Stewart Bremner.

Translated to English: the ball is on the slates of the roof.

Usage: when yer uncle unexpectedly runs out of beer during the cup final.
