Summary

A verse that people used to call out to the Duke of Gordon as he rode past to Tomintoul:

The brave Duke of Gordon is Cock o the North,
He can hunt in every forest between Grantshouse and Forth,
He's a fine castle, river and valley below
That might be called a paradise for deer and for roe.
