Gaberlunzie Man

The name given to a professional travelling beggar, a travelling tinker, a beggar in general. It is the title of a popular song in Allan Ramsay's The Tea-Table Miscellany and of a play by Joe Corrie, and the mendicant beggar has long been a potent myth figure in Scotland's oral tradition. It was also one of the names by which James V was known when he travelled anonymously among his people.
