And here's the evidence:
The first word of the text, "faar", corresponds to English "where".
It's interesting, though, that the one bit of quoted Scots text
(as opposed to the narrative) is in a wh-dialect: "Whotten bonny".

Thanks to for the pointer.

Don't be so humble.  You're not that great.             John Cowan
