It's English, yes? A thing I've noticed about Scotish language is that there is a very wide range of possible useage from the very English to the very Scots. English only speakers (i.e. southrons) will have the most difficult time with the high Scots; Scottish folks with some level of familiarity with Scots will naturally have less trouble.
