An English visitor to our local grouse moor
had been assuring the company that he had a very high reputation as a
crack shot. So confident was he in his shooting powers that he promised
for every bird he missed he would give a pound to Donald, his ghillie.
Telling the story to his billies at night,
Donald added "Ay, it wis a graun day's sport! Anither blank cairtridge an
A wad hae haed twintie pun!"
