Hmmm, I was just looking at the book info at the author's website. Love the quotes especially this one, "A hot little kilt lifter - Sunday Times - a claymore-swinging, heather-igniting, historical adventure."

A hot little kilt lifter??!! I'm not going there :D

There's certainly plenty of kilt-lifting going on :-)

I used to live in Scotland and as I recall, a favourite song of everyone during that time was little ditty called 'Donald where's your Troosers.'

'Oh the winds blow high and the winds blow low
As doon the street in ma kilt I go
All the lassies shout Hello!!!!
And Donald where's yer troosers!'

Quite....
Sorry if that was a bit OT!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

More OT to add to EC's bringing up Donald's Troosers because I've been listening to the song all last week on a CD called Let the Wind Blow High by Enter the Haggis (a Celtic rock band based in Toronto and very popular in the New England states). A hilarious and kilted Craig Downie, the piper, is currently performing this song at festivals and other gigs to the delight of dancing audiences.

So glad to know it's still doing the rounds more than 40 years on! :D

I've put up a youtube url to the song on the fun and games thread of the forum

Always brings to mind the famous scene from the film Carry on Up the Khyber and Sid James's line "Up kilts and at 'em!".
