Jim McLean Scots Word: Sproose (from Corries) (41) RE: Scots Word: Sproose (from Corries) 29 Jul 19


Helen, I can't find any other definition other than tree or tidy in the SLD but the COD does make a reference to "sending someone up".
Unfortunately the song writing half of the Corries responsible is no longer with us and the other half of the Corries, Ronnie Browne, thinks it just means a tree with no hidden meaning.
I reckon, therefore we can take his word for it or continue to speculate.
