Russell Ham has written:

"It's also akin to the American "Lover's Lane" and almost certainly used in
that context for the title of the dance."

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.
