What does FIARS mean?
- Fiars is an expression in old Scots law given to the prices of grain which are determined, by the respective sheriffs in the various counties assisted by juries. The Court for "Striking the fiars" is held towards the end of February in accordance with Act of Sederunt of the Court of Session. The prices fixed are used in the settling of contracts where no prices have been determined upon, e.g. in fixing stipends of ministers of the Church of Scotland, and are found useful in other ways.
