The highest percentage of red hair per head of population, is in Scotland. Something to be proud of! Tha falt ruadh àlainn.

Tha falt ruadh orm . . . And I'm 54 !
Why is "red" here "ruadh" and not "dearg?" It obviously changes depending on what it is referring to: what are the rules for this?

If you're on a PC/laptop, go to the "Body" exercise (section 3 I think). Click on the "Tips" button to read what it says about hair (falt) and the colours you should use with "falt".
