Scaffies Doric Scottish Word
Scaffie is a word common around Scotland and is often also spelt Scaffy. Scaffies translate from Doric to refuse and rubbish collectors, be they dustmen or women. The word origins are from the collection of garbage throughout the years when road sweepers and binmen were called scavengers. Through the decades this has been shortened and translated through Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to Scaffies.
