Our lochs in Scotland are never”lakes”. Rather anglified answer!
Maybe it's in the Lake of Menteith ;-P ...
Maybe you mean Loch Inchmahome
before it was anglified.
No, I mean Loch Innis Mo Cholmaig before it was anglified.
A common mistake it should be Loch Innis MoCholmaig. Innis MoCholmaig meaning “Island of Saint Colmaig”.
True, but they aren't lochs anywhere else in the world. 'The duck is in the loch' will be accepted as an answer though. :)
Why is it in THE lake and not in lake. Is it because anns an and not ann an is used. Thank you.
Thank you :-)
After 50-odd years of calling a loch a loch, my brain is struggling to call a loch a lake! I get it wrong every time..
Or can it be both?
I am interested in the "no lakes / never lakes" in Scotland. Please explain.
All the lakes in Scotland are called "lochs", in both Gaelic and English: Loch Ness, Loch Lomond, Loch Maree, Loch Leven, etc. The only exception being the Lake of Menteith in Stirling :)
how would you say, the duck is on the lake? or is it just accepted as such
Whats a dunnag anyway? Should be nowhere near a Loch! Should leave it to Tunnag!
