Feart is a great Scottish word, used throughout Scotland, though we think it is most commonly a Doric word. Its meaning is to be afraid. Here in the North East we also use Feartie whose definition is someone who is scared.
Ma neebour is a feartie kis he is feart of cushie-doos.
Which translates to:
My neighbour is scared because he is afraid of pigeons.
