There's a quotation in the Dictionary of the Scots Language frae the Daily Express frae the 3rd June 1938:
Only 20 farm workers -a record low number-attended yesterday the Falkirk "Scunnert" Fair- so named because it is held after the annual feeing fair to enable workers who are dissatisfied with their wages and conditions to find alternative employment.
In the DSL scunnert appears in a quotation frae Edinburrae's "Weekly Scotsman" 8th March:
Adam yae day, fairly scunnert wi fruit
For a change o' his diet was wishin
Sangs, stories, ploys an puzzles for early years an new Scots lairners.
