Voted Scottish dialect ‘most attractive in the UK’

Scotland, and in particular Glasgow, has been called the home of the most attractive accent in the United Kingdom.

The nationwide poll put the Scottish accent ahead of previous winners of Northern Ireland and West Yorkshire.

The research was conducted as part of the Most Attractive Traits Study, and respondents were asked to identify regional dialects and dialects that they considered attractive.

The survey also looked at which would be a turn off when considering dating a potential partner.

While Scotland received 36% of the vote, Northern Ireland was considered the second most attractive dialect, with 22% of those surveyed considering it the most attractive.
