“The judges thought that Mither Tongue was a great concept in promoting
the Scots language. The shop is an asset to Keith, as not only an
attraction in its own right but also in provision of
visitor services”.

Ross Montague, Chief Executive



“The Mither Tongue shop in Keith is unique in its product ranges,
and therefore of considerable cultural significance. Not only
does it succeed as a business enterprise, but acts as a hub for
those interested in promoting and sustaining the Scots language,
part of a national network of concerned individuals who value our
linguistic heritage and seek innovative ways to promote it.

Their contribution to the wider understanding of Scots is very much
appreciated, their efforts in relation to the inclusion of Scots in the
2011 Census having been especially noteworthy”

Can’t thank you enough for the individual hand-made invites you
made for our wedding. All our guests commented on them and the
personal touch with the Keith heather. The effort you put into each
individual invite was much appreciated.

I’d like to say a huge “thank you” for the fantastic service. You truly went
above and beyond to help with my order and I’m so impressed. This is
one of the reasons I love to buy from small independent businesses –
never would you receive such a personal and helpful service from a
large retailer. I’d also like to add that the item I ordered – Pride of
Scotland tartan ribbon – was of beautiful quality and I could not find it
anywhere else. I will return if I need any more tartan ribbons – thank you!”

We were so impressed with the speed with which you dealt with our order,
and the quality of the invites. As a Scottish / English couple, the design
could have been made just for us! We have now sent them out and have
had so many positive comments from everyone about the unique and
special design – it has made everything just that little bit more perfect.
Thank you so much.

We are really pleased with the service received from Mither Tongue and
the choice of wedding stationery in a Scottish theme I was thrilled to
have found your website and am so pleased with the invitations etc for our
wedding. You always responded to queries within 24 hours and it was a very
enjoyable experience at this busy time! I will certainly be recommending
your website to friends and family in the future.

I would like to say a huge thank you for our invitations. They are perfect.
I love the Scots language as it will add a more personal touch to our day.

Thank you for all of your help and the outstanding customer service you provided
from our initial enquiry to the arrival of our stationery. I placed our order very
last-minute and you managed to get it to us within our time limit. I was
extremely grateful that you kept us updated on each stage of the process.
Your invitations are high in quality and great value for money, the discount
for large orders really made a difference to the total cost. Thanks again.
