On the first 2 bars, the Ladies Cross By the right, each Finishing Facing Outwards in the Opposite Man's Place While each Man Casts anticlockwise to Face Inwards in the adjacent Lady's Place.
The diagrams show an example as it occurs in bars 17-20 of Rothesay Rant. The Couples are initially stationary, Facing their Partners Across The set; the Ladies Finish beside their Partners.
When the previous Figure leaves the Men Facing Out and the Ladies in, the simpler form of Casting would apply (i.e., with no Turn on the spot halfway to start) as in bars 17-20 of Mrs Stewart's Jig, where it is the first half of the full Ladies' chain, and wherever it is the second half of the full Ladies' chain. This is also the situation in bars 9-12 of Rothesay Rant for the Side Couples (1st and 3rd Couples) but only in the alternative version in which the dancers Exchange places By the left on bars 1-2 and By the right on bars 5-6; in the standard version, both the Men and the Ladies find themselves Facing the wrong way at the end of the preceding Figure and so both Couples need to Turn on the spot halfway on bar 9.
