This leuks like an example o ‘Ameriky’ bein uised in fiction by a Scots speaker in a Gaelic-speakin airt:

“Aye, just that for all I care! The Laird needs this land to mak’ better use of it. Ye can all go to Ameriky, if ye want. It’ll haud ye all.”
Americae America 1928* Montrose Review Ameriky ☑️ https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0001969/19280420/069/0002

Set furth unner the heiding ‘OLD METHODS OF TEACHING’:

The following is intended to show the teaching methods in a Forfarshire school of a former day:—
“‘Ameriky’s a great big place,’ explained the teacher to the class, ‘but it disna a’ belang till itsel’—we have a big lump o’t ca’d Canady. Point oot Canady!’ Here the pointers clattered all over the sheet to north, south, east, and west, but as far from ‘Canady’ as possible. “Eh, that’s awfu’!—Jock Stewart’s hettest!’—instantly every stick claimed kinship with Jock’s—‘but ye’re a’ cauld ye. Up a bittie—tuts! that’s owre far; doon! doon yet—easht noo. Div ye no’ ken your richt hand frae yer left? The tap north, the boddam sooth, the richthand easht, the lefthand wast—pit doon yer pointers an’ say that a’ thegither.’ […]

*This anecdote seems tae hae been liftit frae the beuk Howetoon, the Records of a Scottish Village, by a Residenter (1892). A 1899 Forfar Herald, that recoonts the same jography lesson, cries the stories in the beuk ‘authentic’: ‘[…] there is little if any exaggeration in these sketches. They are noted from the recollection of a participant in the experiences recorded, and are genuine specimens of local humour in a special aspect, and excellent illustrations of some peculiarities of district dialect.’ First recordit reference in the press that I can finnd wis in 1892.
