“Desire isn't enough.” She'd desired William, and her marriage bed had been
either empty of her husband or the scene of brief trysts devoid of pleasure. She
wouldn't be seduced by a handsome stranger. What for? “Please.” He asked, but
then he took. His mouth felt cool on hers but with a touch of fire beneath. That fire
raced through her, igniting parts of her she hadn't known could feel such heat,
such rapture. She gasped again from sheer surprise, and something intruded
between ...

Gaelic was put aside, the society's name changed to 'the Highland Society of
London' and, after 1783, the Falkirk Tryst competitions stopped patronage of
Gaelic poetry. After some founding members failed to re-establish the use of
Gaelic, they formed an alternative organisation.21 The society's agenda turned to
tartan. In 1782, members promoted a Parliamentary bill to repeal the Disarming
Act.” An effort to collect samples of tartan from old Highland families was initiated
in 1815, ...

Crieff 1636 Well known to Rob Roy MacGregor and many of his cattle-droving
compatriots, Crieff was once the scene of the largest cattle markets (trysts) in
Scotland. On the southern edge of the Highlands, it was very much a frontier town
- as far north as fearful southern merchants dared venture and as far south as
legally vulnerable Highlanders wished to go. This tartan from Wilsons was
probably just another one of their fashion setts given the name of a popular town
to increase its ...

Knowing this, we can hardly afford to be sceptical of stories that cattle could
become so weak during winter that they had to be carried to the shielings; we
need not wonder either that their descendants, though small, are remarkably
hardy; but it is perhaps a little surprising that their beef should be so tender and
their milk so creamy and even that their disposition should be so gentle in spite of
a rather fierce appearance. Cattle destined for the great Lowland cattle-trysts

The Disarming Act of 1746, which followed Bonnie Prince Charlie's defeat at the
Battle of Culloden, specifically prohibited displays of Scottish national symbols,
including kilts, tartans, plaids, and Highland bagpipes. Loyalist Highland
regiments, however, were exempted from the bans on the pipes, along with cattle
drovers, "due to the lonely and dangerous nature of their work," which explains
