One of the most popular pipe tunes, there is an excellent four-part setting elsewhere on this site. Bridget MacKenzie, in “Piping Traditions of Argyll” claims that, though originally written by James Mauchline, this tune was re-written by Alexander MacKellar as it was “acknowledged to be much in need of improvement. Both men were members of the 78th Regiment, later the Seaforths, Mauchline from 1836-45. MacKellar was pipe major from 1860-63.
