About the Scottish accent
Scottish voice actors or ‘Scots’ are from Scotland in the UK.
There are a broad range of Scots accents with distinct differences in dialects between the North, South, East and West regions.
There are also distinct vocal differences between rural and urban accents.
A Scottish accent is often parodied by non-natives. The classic being "Och aye the noo" which translates to "Oh yes, just now". An ironic example given these words are rarely used together by Scots.
