On the contrary- the Scots language cannot be Lallans precisely because Lallans means Lowlands in Old English. It follows, logically, that Lallans has always been (well, ever since the Angles of Northumbria colonised the Lothians) the group of Old English dialects spoken north of the border.

Logically, the language of the original Scots of Argyll (Gaelic) is our true Scots language.

Try proving otherwise with conviction.
