Mither Tongue

Gifts & Collectables

165 Mid Street, Keith, Moray, AB55 5BL

    Mither Tongue is a gift shop found in Moray, the Highlands.

    Inspired by Scotland, the Scots language and Robert Burns, this is the only business of its kind promoting Scotland's ancient, vibrant and distinctive language through the medium of exclusive, hand-crafted wedding and celebration stationery, cards and giftware.

    "Mither Tongue is one of a very few businesses in Scotland offering products in the Scots language. The shop is unique in terms of its product range and is therefore of considerable cultural significance. Not only does it succeed as a business enterprise, it is part of a network of concerned individuals who value our linguistic heritage and seek innovative ways to promote it. It also acts as a hub for those interested in promoting and sustaining the Doric dialect.

    Mither Tongue's contribution to the wider understanding of Scots is appreciated, particularly by the Scots Language Centre, and we are always pleased to have their input into our debates, their recent efforts in drawing attention to the proposal to include a question on Scots in the 2011 Census have been particularly noteworthy".

    Michael Hance, Director, Scots Language Centre, Perth

    "The judges thought that Mither Tongue was a great concept for promoting the Scots language. The shop is an asset to Keith, as not only an attraction in its own right, but also in provision of visitor services".

    Ross Montague, Chief Executive, Scottish Countryside Alliance
