I love the Scottish Language (Gaelic): The Lord's Prayer in Scottish



The Lord's Prayer in Scottish

I am starting to fall in love with the Scottish language. A Scottish friend just said to me: "Lang may yer lumb reek" . At first I thought he was using vulgar language on me. But now, I know it means " Long may your chimney smoke" which is like saying " I wish you a long and healthy life". What a nice way to put it.

  1. I do not know Scottish language and hence couldn’t understand the prayer. Glad to see you’re enjoying it but I wish you had posted the english translation as well.
