The Troll and the Kist o Gowd: The Troll in Scots


There wis yince a troll that steyed ablow a brig.
(That s jist whaur trolls are meant tae stey.)

Meanwhile, awa oot tae sea, there wis some pirates that steyed in a ship.
(And that s jist whaur pirates are meant tae stey.)

Trolls, they say, are meant tae eat goats, but nae goats cam teeter-totterin ower this troll s wee brig. Sae he ate fush insteid.

So begins this hilarious tale of the adventures of a bunch of incompetent pirates who can t cook, and a crabbit auld troll who can.

But by a series of coincidences their paths cross with dramatic consequences!
