When you are flatting, and you want cheaper rent, you can rent your room to someone else and pay a reduced (and afore agreed) rent. Since you no longer have a room, you sleep on the couch.

The act of subleting your room and sleeping on the couch is called dossing.
Jodi can't afford her rent since she got dumped, so she's been dossing. The new chick is pretty cool.

Depending on where in Scotland the term 'Doss' is used, determines what meaning is intended to be conveyed.

In Edinburgh for example, If Bob was to call his mate Tam a "Doss cunt", he would be using the term as an adjective to mean thick, useless, stupid.


If the term 'doss' is used in Perthsire, Angus, and the North East, then it is generallt intended to mean...Ace, Fantastic, shit-hot, etc..
