The laird o'Cockpen, he's proud an' he's great, His mind is ta'en up wi' things o'the State.
She's mad for refusing the laird o' Cockpen.
John laird McCaffery ("your friends") - 1940 - 1995
He that steals a cow from a poor widow, or a stirk from a cottar, is a thief; he that lifts a drove from a Sassenach laird, is a gentleman-drover. And, besides, to take a tree from the forest, a salmon from the river, a deer from the hill, or a cow from a Lowland strath, is what no Highlander need ever think shame upon.walter scott
