Joe, Here are a few samples where poets have used 'breckan!.

Hugh MacDonald's Bonnie Wee Well: .... as it jinks 'neath the breckan and gentle bluebell.

Quote from R A Smith on Robert Tannahill: .. there he could recline on the brown heather or sit on the side of a breckan fringed rock ...

James Hogg's MacLean's Welcome: .... the lamb from the breckan, the doe from the glen

John Imlah's The Land O' Cakes: ..... On knock an' knowe, the whin and broom, an' on the braes the breckan.

I could go on ....
