Ruaig air Caiptean nan Gall Ruaig air Caiptean’ nan Gall / The Retreat of the Lowland Captain K2; the rout of the Engliish [sic] Captain JK. The Rout of the English Captain. In other names with ruaig air it is a body of men who are ‘routed’. Perhaps the words here imply that the captain led his company in and they were all put to flight.
