Hieland Laddies

Clan Haggis has been particularly unreasonable in the matter of accepting 'German George' as the legitimate king of Scotland and England. Each year on Saint Andrews birthday the 14th Earl of Glenallachie and hereditary Chieftain of Clan Haggis, 'Red Dougie' MacArdo raises the Jacobite standard on behalf of the 'king across the water'. The clansmen then run amok, stealing other peoples cows and sheep until the government regiments come out to fight. After a 'bluddie grrreat fecht', win or lose, the contented clansmen return to their remote glens and valleys for another year.
