I observe with some interest that very little Scottish literature is devoted to the ancient Gaelic game of Shinty. Could this be an active demonstration of the way that cultural life in Scotland is dominated by genteel, Edinburgh-based sassenach lovers? There is plenty of Caledonian written material drawing inspiration from Assocation football, Rugby Union and golf. But sports beloved of kilted highland crofters seem to get totally overlooked. Maybe it's a direct literary consequence of the Highland clearances.

Sorry for plagiarising you GB. I was away for a few days and didn't see it!
