It was indeed ascertained that instinctive affection for her lamb had led this animal across the Tweed, and over the lofty heights between Cailzie and Newby; a route of very considerable difficulty, and probably quite different from that by which she had been led away, but the most direct that could have been taken.

The only stations—and miserably primitive ones at that—lay along Ben Holliday's overland stage route. They were far between.
