My apologies for having somehow missed Stewart Cunningham's message (which I
now have read) before sending the following just a few minutes ago. Stewart's
information is indeed the "more definitive" which I had sought.

["I am being a bit redundant, as I have already posted the same information,
but from what I have heard (though I have no firm proof) the name of the dance
refers to what is a general term "trysting place," common in traditional
Scottish usage, indicating an outdoor market or fair, though I do not know the
context of this reference to the dance itself, if in fact there is any.  Perhaps
someone else is aware of something more definitive."]
