Many Outlander fans will know the pain of asking for directions to ‘Cul-Ross’ only to have people look at you like there is no such place. In fact, this place is shortened to ‘Coo-Riss’, which means next time you head there you can sound like a local.

6. Kirkcudbright

Yip, we are back in Dumfries and Galloway again, this time in the charming town of Kirkcudbright. So far so reasonable sounding right? Well, what if we told you it was in fact pronounced ‘Kirk-coo-bree’?
