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?

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".
