"It was interesting to find that Lallans was traditionally used to represent the Scots language as a whole"
Guest, I am unsure what you mean by that. Gaelic was and still is the native language of the Highlands and Islands. Lallans is an Anglo-Saxon based language while Gaelic is Celtic. Craig is indeed Gaelic but the rest is Lallans. It seems to be a bit of a mixed bag.
