About the Scottish accent

Scottish voice actors or ‘Scots’ are from Scotland in the UK. In partnership with ScottishVoiceOvers.com (The Scottish voice-over agency) we are able to provide the very best native Scottish voice actors for your project.

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.

More about Scottish accents

Scottish voice actors agency

Scottish English is the result of contact with ‘the auld enemy’ England after the 17th century.

Scots or broad Scots is a Germanic language variety and depending on where the speaker originates can influence how ‘broad’ the Scots accent is.

A very broad accent can be hard to understand, even within Scotland. The Aberdeenshires Doric dialect being a prime example.

In formal situations most people speak Scottish English, which is generally well understood and clear to all ears with just a few notable differences in inflection to standard English.

Scottish English is well known worldwide thanks to popular Hollywood and Disney movies such as Braveheart and Pixar Animation Studio’s Brave. Voquent the voice-over agency can provide voices just like them.
