In the title story, Sir Walter Scott juxtaposes two codes of honor (English vs. Highland) to the detriment of both parties and their friendship. The characters are equally matched- handsome, likeable, hard-working, honorable, friendly. It is only the conflict of their custom (and the instigation of onlookers) that brings these two friends to naught.

A beautiful short story about honor and justice.

Again, as with Wandering Willie's Tale, the Scottish brogue made parts of this very difficult to understand. A story of a l tragedy foretold, and enacted, due to a highland pride.
