Tell me about it, p. My brother-in-law is a Scot, and is forever telling me about the Appin Stewarts who, coincidently, joined the Frasers in their glorious* Highland charge against the royalist left flank at Culloden. Small world, eh?
(*well he says 'glorious', I say 'futile'. Though not to his face if he's had a wee dram, or ten
Incidently, I've a book - The Highland Clearances by John Prebble, and the Frasers of Inverness - the clan chiefs, I mean - don't come out of it with a lot of credit. But I'm sure you know all about the way the Highlanders were treated, and by their own kin. A sorry tale, indeed.
