Product Description


This second enlarged edition of Buchan Claik combines the experience and writing talents of two of Aberdeenshire's best-known authors: ex-fisherman Peter Buchan (the Saat) and ex-farmworker David Toulmin (the Glaar) to produce a splendid hoard of words, sayings, proverbs, rhymes and reminiscences from the North-East of Scotland.


Although Buchan Claik is presented alphabetically, it is more than just a dictionary. These men had too much information on tap; too many stories up their sleeves; too many years discussing the land and the sea to be muzzled by the constraints a dictionary would apply. Given a free rein, they compiled a book which is a safe-deposit for an important part of our heritage.
