Highland Swordsmanship

Highland Swordsmanship The Scottish Highlander has been romanticized in poetry, song and legend, immortalized in the figures of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Rob Roy. His reputation as a fierce fighter and deadly swordsman was more than a myth however: a proud tradition of Scottish fencing masters taught the use of the backsword, smallsword, target and dirk in the 17th-19th centuries. From the 'Anglicized' upper-class Sir William Hope to the bawdy soldier-turned-fencing master Donald MacBane, who ran his fencing salon out of his wife's brothel, these masters were as colorful and diverse as the Scottish people themselves.

More than 40,000 Scottish soldiers were in action on the continent during this era. Their stories were omitted from most Scottish histories. Scotsmen trained the armies and founded the fleets of Russia. For generations the old Scots Brigade of immortal memory was the boasted 'Bulwark of Holland'.
