Can you understand Scots speakers?

This question asks whether you can understand the Scots language when it is spoken.  With any language we may understand it as a native speaker, we may understand it through hearing it all our lives, yet be unable to speak it ourselves.  We may understand the language through learning to speak the language as a second or other language, and we may learn to understand it later in life though we never speak it.
