I found this online along with a description of Sir Harry who according to Wikipedia was a well-known performer who dressed in Highland regalia (as seen above, note the muckle hairy sporam) and sang songs of his own composition with a Scottish themeĀ  such as Roamin’ in the Gloamin’).

  1. I am a No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency fan. How is Sir Harry? Is he from another Alexander McCall Smith series?

      Think you may be referring to Harry Lowder who is part of Alexander McCall Smith’s Edinburgh series he has two.The Isabel Dalhousie series and the 44 Scotland St. series. I think he’s gotten better explaining obscure Scottish phrases but some of the earlier books have a lot of things I didn’t understand hence the blog post.
