The Laird O Drum

from Jessie Davidson, Tugnet

The Laird of Drum sees a young girl shearing barley and falls in love with her. She rejects his advances as she is of too low degree to be lady of the Drum and will not be his mistress. He persuades her and they marry, but his kinsfolk disrespect her.
