A word used more in Scotland than in England and America, but not a bad word, for that.

To keek is to peek, to glance, to look quickly. A keek is a quick look, a peek. Simple enough. It’s pronounced just how it looks, with a long E.

From the Middle English kiken or keken. Both kiken and piken, the root of peek, probably come from the Middle Dutch kieken.
