Posted in Wikinut>Writing>Biography & Autobiography

Rob Roy was, unlike many other legends, a real person acquiring his status by raiding Lowland laird's or lowland land owners and very much outside the law thereby gaining the title "outlaw" he ranks with the likes of Robin Hood, King Auther, Guy Fawkes Sir William Wallace and Robert the Bruce

The Scottish Robin Hood

Rob Roy was a famous Scottish folk hero and just like the English Robin Hood an outlaw

Roy was an avant supporter of the Stuart King James II and at the age of eighteen joined the Jacobite rising also known as the Seven Years' War (God only knows why they called it the seven years war).

It was fought between 1754 and 1763 now maths was never my strongest subject at school, but no matter how many times and how many ways I work it out it still comes out as nine years

The seven years war was also known as the War of the Conquest, Pomeranian War, Third Carnatic War, or the Third Silesian War but we won't go into that, life is far too short enough as it is

B&B with history

Born in 1671 in Glen Gyle in a house built by Rob Roy himself and called surprisingly Glengyle House on Loch Katrine the house still remains and has now been developed into holiday letting apartments

So if you fancy a short stay in Bonny Scotland in a house filled to the brim with history check them out and the bonus is there is a very nice little whiskey distillery nearby, cheers.

I just can not help adding a bit of trivia here, did you know the word Whisky comes from the Gaelic word "Uisc" meaning water?
And Distilled alcohol in Latin "aqua vitae" ("water of life")? I bet you feel a whole lot better for knowing that.
Anyway back to our Rob




Braveheart

This highland rebel was regarded as the second greatest worrier of Scotland the first great man and hero was William Wallace who died three hundred years earlier on 23 August 1305

The film "Braveheart" was based on the life of the Scottish knight William Wallace son of Sir Malcolm of Elderslie, check it out

He had a cocktail named after him

Now here's yet another piece of trivia for you

In 1894 Reginald De Koven and lyricist Harry B. Smith opened their operetta "Rob Roy" a bartender at the Waldorf Astoria Manhattan created a cocktail called "The Rob Roy" very similar to a manhattan but using scotch whiskey instead of the usual Rye or even bourbon or Canadian whisky

If you want to try it use
4.5 cl Scotch whisky
2.5 cl Sweet vermouth
Dash Angostura bitters

Stirred over ice, strained into a chilled glass, garnished, and served straight up, or mixed in a cocktail glass, filled with ice....Cheers

Yet another film

But not to be outdone by William Wallace In 1994, the film "Rob Roy starring Liam Neeson, Jessica Lange and John Hurt was released

Another film for all you Caledonian devotee's, other Scottish heroes have to include Robert the Bruce, Robert Burns, and Sir Walter Scott, here endeth the lesson

Thank you very much - Muchos-gracias- Merci beaucoup - Vielen Danke - Mange Takk -
