A stramash is a noisy and violent commotion. It can describe anything from the weans tearing about the house yelling to a punch-up in the street.
Whit’s aw the stramash here? Whether you are sending the weans to bed for getting out of hand, or calling the polis on some neds going at it in the street, if you’re in Scotland what you’re dealing with is a stramash. It’s any kind of ruck that needs calming down.
