In English

Scots Radio is a programme that speaks about the culture and the on-going plans of people who use Scots in their working world.

According to the last census taken in Scotland, there are around 1.5 million Scots speakers in this country.  You don’t have to go far to hear it – just go as far North, South, East or West as your ears will take you.

I hope you enjoy searching through the episodes of SLR and welcome to the company that celebrates the Scots Language – and the people who just speak it.
