There's Naethin I' Hielants
There's naething i' Hielants but green kail and leeks,
And lang-leggit Hielantmen wantin' the breeks;
Wantin' the breeks, and withoot hose or shoon,
They'll a' get the breeks when Jamie comes hame.
Rymour Club Misc. I (1906), 221, from Kirriemuir; on the
face of it, referring to the first Jacobite rebellion.
Lines 1-2 ibid., 127, from Crawford district ("There's
nocht in the Hielan's but lang kail and leeks"), called
"a well-known rhyme, expressing the Lowlander's contempt
for the Highlander."
