Notes on Gaelic Title

Fàilte Dheòrsa Òig Young George wellcome C1; Failt Dherse Oig &c. H; Failté Dheors’ òig / Young George’s Salute R; Failte Dheorse Oig / Young George’s Salute D2; Failte Sheorais Oig Tighearna Chaladair / George Cambell Yr of Calder’s Salute K1; Failte Sheorais Oig K1 index; Failte George Oag SC. Young George’s Salute. The use of ‘welcome’, or at any rate the non-use of ‘salute’, in C1 need not signify any difference between Colin Campbell’s and others’ understanding of the name. Campbell never writes ‘salute’ but uses other words like ‘march’.
