07/04/2017 Can you pronounce these Scottish place names correctly?
Scotland, the country best known for the scenic Highlands, whisky and deep-fried Mars bars… and impossible to pronounce place names.
Have a go first and then listen to CereProc’s Heather to see what it’s meant to sound like.
If you get all of them right, you can call yourself an honorary Scot!
Ok, let’s start easy! Can you say Edinburgh correctly? Not challenging for Scots but many a tourist (and American TV presenter) has gotten it wrong.
A few more for a warmup…
Can you say Wemyss?
What about Strathaven?
How do you say Auchenshuggle?
Or the famous Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow? (Hint – it’s not ‘sauce hall’…)
OK, on to the tough stuff…
Have you heard of Auchtermuchty , situated in the beautiful Kingdom of Fife?
Have you been to Eilean Donan yet?
Or Culzean in Ayrshire?
What about the wee village of Poolewe up in the Highlands?
Have you tried the Ecclefechan tart (or the whisky)?
And finally, did you know they used to drown witches in Kilconquhar?
