“McHardy Boys,” by John Duff
  An article originally published in The Scots Magazine, reprinted here with the author's kind permission. Although the major part of the article follows a branch of the Auchallater McHardys all the way to New Zealand, the Auchallater folk are related to the Ordachoyers through Ann who married James of Ordachoy. The article also does a wonderful job of describing a certain McHardy spirit.
