  • People in Scotland have lot’s of different accents, both when speaking in proper English and in Scottish dialect.

    In fact many Scots who have a very strong accent when speaking in dialect, actually sound the least Scottish when speaking proper English, and could be taken by many to be English rather than Scottish. That probably results from overcompensation in order to make themselves understood, when not in their home area.

    In Gordon Ramsey’s case, however, I think his accent is a result of not being brought up in Scotland and travelling around a lot, although he can still revert to Scottish dialect when he wants to.

    Other examples of famous Scots who do not sound Scottish include Tony Blair, David Cameron (the UK Conservative leader) and John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness in Torchwood and Doctor Who – another person who can revert to Scottish dialect).

  • Its because he moved alot when he was a child due to his father acquiring new jobs around the UK. So he never adopted the Scottish Accent.
