Since no one else has commented on this, and since Ken doesn't seem to have comments enabled in his blog, let me say that was one of the most interesting articles on Scottish history that I've read in a long time. I wish my mom were alive so I could share it with her. (That's not the only reason I wish my mom were alive, but Mom's mum was born in Scotland, as were some of my dad's ancestors, so Scottish history was a big topic in our house.)

Belle's reminiscences of her ancestors was also fun.
