ABSTRACT
The article examines the conception of martial masculinity as the basis of men's social bonds in both the Highlands and the Lowland Scottish regions in 18th-century Scotland. The author questions this conception, which was espoused by Adam Ferguson, the chaplain of the First Highland Regiment of Foot and member of the Scottish Enlightenment literati. The author argues that this conception reflects the ideals of patriotic masculinity only within urban elite culture, and was opposed to the different constructions of martial manhood primarily located in the Highlands.
