The Lowland Scots tongue, often called only Scots is a West Theedish tongue, which, like nowadays' English, comes from the Old English tongue. It is spoken in the lowlands of Scotland and in bits of Northern Ireland. In farming grounds, a cleaner kind of Scots is spoken, while in towns it is mingled with English. Scots is not the same as the Scottish byspeech of English.
When it was first spoken, the tongue was called English, and "Scottish" meant the Scottish Gaelish Tongue. Scots was much less swayed by the French sway in the English tongue, which is why it still has many things from Old English which were lost in nowadays' English. For show: lift instead of air, ettle instead of intend, umbethink instead of remember, leid instead of language, clyre instead of tumour, and others.
