The baw's oan the slates – magnet


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 magnet, drawn by Stewart Bremner.
