the Port O Menteith. Wi wur aw treetit tae a great feed O perch fae the
lake, washit doon wi McNie’s "Wicket Broo."
It wis aboot the oor whin aw
guid folk are tucked awa fir the nicht. Rob stid up oan his pins woblin
licht a furn on toap O a hill oan a sleekit day. He oardird thit aw
aboot him be atentit, fur he wis aboot tae mac a proclimayshun.
"Fi this day furrit
oany mon foonit tae hae violatit a Greegar wuman wul hae his tackle
feedit tae the perch swamin aboot yon Lake O Menteith". This wurds
wis meetit wi great guffaws.
But a dare say tae this very
day yul no meet a MacGregor Mon thit wad eat O the perch fi yon Lake O
Menteith fir fear he micht be eatin the teeniest pert O a coords weapon.
Oany mon foond sae sleekit
