The Little Book of Scottish Rain

illustrated by Tim Kirby

It’s widely reported that Eskimos have over 50 words for snow. Given the equivalent ubiquity of rain in Britain’s northern climes, it is not surprising that Scots have coined just as many (and possibly many more) expressions for the many different types of precipitation that fall from our skies.

In this book Ron Butlin introduces 50 of the most colourful Scottish words for rain in humorous and memorable verse, imaginatively accompanied with illustrations by Tim Kirby.

Ron Butlin is a poet, playwright, novelist, short-story writer and opera librettist whose works have been translated into many languages.

Tim Kirby is a British artist and illustrator, providing drawings for editorial, publishing, corporate and advertising, as well as private commissions.
