Germanic language? I think so! It's a true Germanic language more than English. It's said to be the Anglo-Saxon language. Several words in the Scots language, maybe all arguably, are Anglo-Saxon words.
That's why I say the Lowlands isn't really Scotland.

The Highlands are the real Celtic, Gaelic part. In fact they have more in common with England than the Lowlands.

Obviously in the Highlands, the language is Gaelic, which I believe shares similarities with English, Norman English and Irish Gaelic, and Welsh.

The Lowlands of Scotland are the least indigenous of the Isles (unless there was a Germanic group native to there).
