Who are the Scots?
From the 14th century, the Scots language, which was derived from English, became more prevalent in the country. It is a language having its own unique grammatical style and vocabulary and was spoken across Scotland, even by royalty. This language predominated until the Union of the Crowns in the 17th century. The works of Robert Burns, Scotland's most famous poet, contain many examples of the old Scots language.
