Nooo - his Perthshire accent is much classier than Edinburgh. (I might just be a little biased having grown up in Perthshire!)
I was born and brought up in Fife, but quite honestly I can't tell the difference between the accents of central Scotland, except, of course, Glesca - which, like Aberdeen, has its own very distinct twang ... sorry, correction - Aberdonians speak a different language all of their own!
Talking about accents see in the paper today that the new Iphone has been unable to understand Scottish accents. I know when you phone some of the automated bank systems they seem to have difficulty in understanding. I always like to speak to a human being instead of a machine for that reason.

I too hate automated systems. In fact I've just been onto my bank, which recently changed its automated system. When asked to say Yes or No to one question, I said No, to which the Anglicised automated voice replied "Sorry, I didn't understand that. Please repeat it"! I do have a Scots accent but certainly not a broad one!!

I love the colour of that Murray tartan, particularly as it really suits Andy.
