This chapter looks at the challenging subject of Scottish and Irish reservations about the nature of empire even while participating in it. It identifies the presence of Scottish and Irish societies abroad in the British Empire as means of exporting nationalities, which had by 1801 officially disappeared into the United Kingdom. It suggests that notwithstanding enthusiastic participation in colonialism by many Scottish and Irish figures, where certain intellectual or political structures or networks were in place, a different attitude, ‘Fratriotism’ — the espousal of the rights of other countries as displaced versions of one's own — was an important component in the Scottish and Irish experience of empire. Extended consideration is given to the cases of Boswell, Byron, and Cochrane.
