Ian Maclaren: A Doctor of the Old School

Ian Maclaren has written some fine passages (The Cunning Speech of Drumtochty in his first book) and even books (Young Barbarians, which may be nostalgic, but in a humorous way). Nevertheless, if you want to find out why the so-called Kailyard School has been the target of so much condemnation over the years, read this. I suspect not even a third-rate Holywood production would dare create something so embarrassingly over-sentimental.
