Redgauntlet by Walter Scott

I'm re-reading this book. It is the one among his later books which returns to the Scottish C18 scene of his earliest books, with a society divided politically in the aftermath of civil wars. There is often an odd idea about that Scottish history is solely to do with the Highlands. So far, the book has been set in Edinburgh and the Scottish side of the English border, by the Solway Firth. (The scene I remember is of men fishing for salmon on the Solway by chasing them on horseback with spears.) Scott's prose style is long winded, but makes a curious contrast with the melodramatic action and the spectacular scenery. Anyone else read it?
