How do you say "crazy" in Scottish or Scottish Gaelic?
I am writing a fiction novel where the male lead is a 16th century Highlander. I'm looking for some help with key phrases and words. Is there a Scottish of Gaelic word for crazy? And, is there any place else I can look for English to Scottish Gaelic translations? Have searched the web and found little to help.
hi Big redd thankyou for your question.
my answer would not be so much gaelic but more scottish slang.
DOO-LALLY is the most commonly used word in scotland for crazy or just the word mental.
he has gone totaly doo-lally would i think be the best answer that i could offer as it is the most common used in Scotland.
his wife walked out on him and he went totally doo-lally
hope that helps.....jimmy
In Gaelic, the word "Crazy" (mental, cracked) is "craicéailte" or "craicte".
