Hi there,
I am working on a text where one of the characters speaks Scottish... I usually get the meaning of a sentence, sometimes find it hard to catch all the single words though. Anybody can help me on the followings?

    Hello, hello.
    A nice bit of kindling and no mistake.

    kindling - One of a brood or litter; a young animal.
    From the dialect verb, kindle, to give birth.

    I'm not making this up, I promise :)
