Cosagach

Cosagach. A word adopted by the tourism industry to promote the warm glow visitors will feel on experiencing Scotland but which Gaelic scholars say actually means a wee hidey-hole for spiders. We have such a hole in our mantle piece. In their ‘cosagach’ by our fireplace tonight both human and spider families are enjoying a warm Scottish glow from the peat fire.7CD288D6-FE08-4FB7-A906-C5165BD4F8C7
