  • For ordinar the Scots Makars refers til a Scots leid leeterar genre o the late Middle Ages.
  • In modren Scotland, The Scots Makar (cutty mak: The Makar) is the Scots’ naitional poet, appyntit by the Scots Pairlament, an the equeevalent o the English Poet Laureate. Syne 2004, the Makar haes been Edwin Morgan.
