Andrew Campbell and Roddy Martine, in "The Swinging Sporran, a
lighthearted guide to the basic steps and Scottish reels and country
dances" (1988), call for a crossed-hands swing, using what they describe
as a "travel step." They have a footnote to the effect that this is the
same step described by the Fletts as the "Travelling Pas de Basque."

(They also call for crossed-hand swings in The Reel of the 51st
Division, and in The Duke of Perth for a swing with left arms linked at
bars 5-8, and for linked-arm swings with corners and partner at bars
9-16.)
