Scottish colloquialism, maybe?

Or at least a niftier dialected way of saying something.

Is there a way that a native highland Scotsman might tell someone they "look like hell" without using those exact words? I'm sorry if this question might offend but my character is Scots and though I've been learning the dialect to help me write, I don't know how I'd look that up in any of my glossaries/dictionaries.

So far I've looked at these two "dictionaries" as well as a google search for "you look like hell" scots dialect which came up with nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
