The dialect is called Cumbric by modern scholars, and gives its namer to Cumbria. William Wallace's ancestors were probably Welsh speakers, as that is the meaning of the surname Wallace.

Because I'm considering joining the Bardic course, and because I lived so long in Scotland and have a strong affinity with it, then the OBOD "take" on it is important to me. Looking back at how I worded my original question, perhaps this wasn't very clear. My impression, based on the time I have spent researching OBOD and chatting on this board is that there are very few Scots involved. I wonder why that is.
