February issue: All are Scottish words, terms or slang and also could also be regional Scottish terms or variations only used in specific geographical areas. Due to difficulty and often many variations of spelling, some of my adjoining letters might be in error.


16a. Strike (6) S?E?C?

Have considered SKELPT but adjoining letters don't allow. Reasonably confident of letters S & C - but less for letter E. Letter E derived from 3d. Also considered STRICK, but letter E scotches that idea (pun intended).


3d. Go down the slope (3,4,3,4) G?E ?O?? T?E ?RAE

I have GAE DOON THE BRAE (and letter E from THE provides E for 16a. As the word THE is in the clue, I'm suspicious of it also being in the answer.


9a. Work away (5,2) K??PE ?N


11d. A scolding (9) ???R?Y??N


25a. Walk flat-footed (3) ??P


Many thanks
