Sandy Mc Lean--

I must admit, I had not heard the term "Lallans" before, so I googled it and came up with:

"Lallans: a variant of the Modern Scots word lawlands, was also traditionally used to refer to the Scots language as a whole...
Both Robert Burns and Robert Louis Stevenson used it to refer to the Scots language."

This is a Robert Burns poem, so I am guessing it is in Lallans then. I did not know Craig is Gaelic, although I am familiar with Gaelic as being the native language. This forum is a wealth of knowledge, thank you for all your feedback!
