"Outwith" is a wonderful word. Though I am not a Scot, I will die on this hill (or brae).

@nullifidian Now I'm wondering if the sentence is "Out with ye!" or "Outwith, ye!"

@arclight It generally used in place of “outside of <bounds condition>” or “excepting from <…>”, but can also mean simply the opposite of “within” (cf “without”).
What you’re looking for is “get tae…”. 😉

@nullifidian Thank you! I really should take a proper Scottish Gaelic course. Depending on the political situations in Scotland and Texas, emigrating might be a reasonable option. Best start preparing for that eventuality...

@arclight No clue about Gaelic. Can’t even fathom the orthography! Better off talking with @Olaindeach about that.
