sm Way, manner. 2 Appearance. 3** Likeness. Ludh an spioraid, a' dol timcheall na drochaid, the way of the ghost, going round the bridge. Macintosh's translation of this, given by Armstrong, is “go about the bridge as the ghost did.” The superstition here referred to is illustrated in Tam o' Shanter, where the infernal pursuers have no power to go beyond the keystone of the bridge; thachair ludh an uinnsinn fhiadhaich dha, cinnidh e gu math, ach millidh e a' chraobh a bhios an taice ris, the way of the wild ash befel him, it grows well but kills the tree that's near it — NGP.
