Scottish Nursery Rhymes


The first thing most children learn by heart is a nursery rhyme - a potent mixture of rhythm, sound, language, story, music, morals, and nonsense, with the ability to traverse centuries and continents.

Here are over 200 traditional rhymes from all over Scotland - games, counting rhymes, songs, lullabies, riddles, toasts - to fit every occasion, gathered and edited by folklorists Norah and William Montgomerie.
