The argument presented here is that cultural studies interventions on sport in British social development are parochial and have grown out of a certain reading of Gramsci's work. The work of Tom Nairn provides the basis for (a) a substantive discussion on the relationship between the Scottish Highland Gatherings, the monarchy, and Highland culture during the Victorian period, and (b) developing a nationalist/socialist reading of Gramsci and consequently a nationalist/socialist critique of cultural studies accounts of sport in Britain.
